My development team currently uses TFS2019 as their repository for all of their code. They use TFVC as their version control, not Git, and use TFS2019 as their CI tool. We do not currently have plans to move to Git.
Unfortunately, I am on a test team, which has separate access requirements from the development team, and I do not have access to Visual Studio 2019 but I do have access to Team explorer. Reading through the Test Studio documentation posted online, it seems I need to install Visual Studio Team explorer 2008 or 2010. Currently, on my machine, I have Visual Studio Team explorer 2019 and I can connect directly to my TFS server and commit changes through Team Explorer 2019, however, I keep running into a TF30063 error, see images 1 and 2 below, when trying to access my TFS server from Test studio.
Is there a possibility to use a newer version of Team explorer such as 2017 or 2019, or do we absolutely have to use 2008 or 2010 to connect to TFS through Telerik Test studio?
Image 1. With Telerik Test studio open to the Project I am using, connect to TFS using the values below.
Image 2: when selecting the TFS project, Telerik Test Studio, I receive the TF30063 error, stating that I am an unauthorized user.
