Using an existing Visual Studio TFS workspace?

I have multiple projects in Visual Studio and would like WebStorm 3.0 to access the same local working folders so that WebStorm and Visual Studio can be used interchangably. When I add my TFS server to the 'Manage TFS Servers and Workspaces' dialog, it doesn't appear to find any existing workspaces and if I try to create a new workspace mapped to my existing folders, it says those folders are already in use by another workspace.

Is there a way to find and use that existing workspace? Or will WebStorm and Visual Studio need to use different local working folders?

Hi Mike,

WebStorm should actually show you Visual Studio workspaces. Do you use exactly the same credentials in VS and WebStorm?

Hi Kirill,

Turns out it was a credential issue. While my user credentials had permission to access TFS, the workspace was owned by the administrator account by default. When I went in and changed the owner to match my user account, it appeared in WebStorm.
