    Thanks for this. I was having a problem with the TFS API giving me an error ‘You must provide all and only these properties/capabilities : ‘ when I was posting a project creation request with only the name and description fields supplied.

    There’s no mention in the TFS API v1.0 documentation that the capabilities fields are mandatory and must contain the template and version control information.
