Why can’t I see my updated Active Directory groups in Visual Studio Release Management?
It is a fairly common question. And the answer is pretty easy: by default, there is no automated synchronization.
In order to manually sync them up, you should press the Refresh button in the Manage Groups section of the VSRM client.
But what if I want to have an automated synchronization?
The setting to change is the AD/TFS-Based Group Refresh Interval.
Set it to something different than 0 (minutes), and VSRM will start synchronizing your accounts every interval you defined.
