CodePlex/TFS permissions: have no Project Administrators, only Coordinators and lower

May 2, 2012 at 10:39 AM

We're having issues with TFS permissions in our CodePlex project (http://1intranet.codeplex.com/). We need to change permissions on a branch, but none of us are allowed to do this, we get an 'Access denied: need AdminProjectRights permission' error.

The problem seems to be that none of us have this AdminProjectRights permission, not even the creator of the CodePlex project ('chemikalpete', see http://1intranet.codeplex.com/team/view). He gets the same error.

We tried the TFS Administration Tool (http://tfsadmin.codeplex.com/), this lists all of us as we appear on the CodePlex site, as Coordinators and Developers. It only shows 1 project administrator: "RNO\_MCLWEB". None of us know what this account is, perhaps a CodePlex internal system account of some sort?

Does anybody know how we can obtain TFS Project Administrator permissions on our CodePlex project?
