  • How to delete a team project from tfs online


    unfortunately we cannot delete a team project from visual studio or online control panel. to delete a team project you need to use the command line utility.

    run visual studio tools command prompt tools. make sure you open the x86 version as x64 version wouldnt work.

    and then run this command:

    tfsdeleteproject /collection: "Your project name"

    if required this will prompt you to login with a Microsoft Account.

    after you log in it will prompt you with a yes/no question. enter y press enter and it will delete your site collection.

  • TF30063: You are not authorized to access Collection


    if you are trying to connect to team foundation server online through visual studio and you get unauthorized excetion.

    first make sure you have got access to that account and if you do then it most probably must be because of a cached microsoft account which does not have access to the collection. to fix this:

    1. Open visual studio
    2. using a visual studio built in browser, navigate to
    3. Sign out of the exisiting logged in account
    4. Log in using the microsoft account which has got access to the collection
    5. and you are good to go.
