Once all information is filled out, select ‘Verify’. A common error that occurs is the Access Denied error.

Access Denied: ReleaseUser needs the following permission(s) to perform this action: Make requests on behalf of others.

This error occurs if the user being used does not have the right permissions in TFS. To configure the permissions, a user or a windows group must be added to the Project Collection Administrators group and granted Make requests on behalf of others permission.

Add User or Windows Group to Project Collection Administrators.
