TFS Security updates

On Wednesday, we released a roll up of fixes for security vulnerabilities for several versions of Team Foundation Server. There are no new features in this update. Most of the vulnerabilities are related to cross site scripting (XSS), some of which were customer reported. The others include an improperly encoded API, a service endpoint editing experience which exposes a previously configured password, and a regex denial of service vulnerability in our web portal. We recommend customers install these updates. These fixes are included in the recently released Team Foundation Server 2018 Update 1. The release on Wednesday was for older versions and for customers who are not yet ready to update to the TFS 2018.

Oh my – some dashboard candy that is life changing

A month or so ago we opened a Visual Studio Team Services instance in Canada and yesterday it occurred to me to wonder how that was going.  I sent mail to someone who "owns" that scenario and after a little back and forth I had the answer.  He then asked me if I wanted to see that data on a regular basis for all our instances and I said no, ...

Team Foundation Server 2018 and SQL Server

About 6 weeks ago, I wrote a post announcing the availability of TFS 2018 RC1.  In the comments, there ensued a sizeable conversation about the requirement for SQL Server 2016 or later (rather than also supporting SQL Server 2014).  It was good to get the feedback.  I read it carefully and we discussed it within our team.  I wanted to wrap...
