  • Store TFS credentials for CodePlex

    May 06, 2012 | Tags: Team Foundation Server, Open source
    Tired of always having to rewrite you credentials when starting up you CodePlex hosted project in Visual Studio? If so, just follow these steps (assuming you're using Windows 7):

    1.  Go to the Control Panel and select User Accounts and Manage your credentials.
    2. Add a Windows credential, enter tfs.codeplex.com and your login criteria (username/password). Be sure to include the domain prefix for your username.
    3. Click OK and you're done!
    Next time you go online with Visual Studio you'll be automatically logged in.

    This will also work for any other TFS, you just need to put the correct address instead of tfs.codeplex.com when adding the Windows credential.
