Create Non AD User in TFS in a Domain
If you want to create a non existing user for some purpose to TFS (For example assign all removed User Stories and Bugs to a non existing user, this was the requirement I got from a client :)) and if you do not like to add this user to Active Directory since there is no such actual Person, you can achieve this by creating the user in the TFS box as a windows user.
First create a windows user in TFS box
Add this user to the team project (do it inside the TFS box and you will not have any issues). My domain is ALM and my TFS box is TFS.
From any client machine having access to the TFS, login with the new user.
It works like a charm!
It is great if the latest updates to TFS can be applied as and when they are released. But for a large organization it might not be sometime...
