Error linking Azure with Team Foundation Service

In trying to link Azure with Team Foundation Service I ran into the permission error listed below.

Failed to link TFS project ‘Your Project’ with your cloud service ‘Your Cloud Service’
Access Denied: needs the following permission(s) on the resource StrongBox to perform this action: Create a StrongBox Drawer.

You need to be added to the Project Collection Admin groups.


  1. From the main TFS page
  2. Click the Administer Account icon in the upper right corner.
  3. Select the Collection that your Team Project is in (i.e. DefaultCollection)
  4. Click “Manage collection security group and group membership”
  5. Add user from the members tab of “Project Collection Administrators”
