  • Select WebDAV Connection if the server is to be accessed across the HTTP protocol.
  • Select SVN Server Connection if the server is on a remote machine and is to be accessed through the svn protocol.

Setting Description

Default URL

Custom URL

Enter an alternate URL if your Team Project Collection has a non-standard URL that cannot be correctly built using SQL Navigator’s configuration settings.

When this value is set, SQL Navigator ignores all the other settings (Server, Port, Collection, Virtual Dir, etc.) and uses the Alternate URL to build TFS calls to the Team Project Collection on the server.

Note: It is recommended that this is only used in the very small number of cases where the URL to the Team Project Collection is not configurable from the normal SQL Navigator settings.


Specify the TFS Collection to connect to , if using TFS 2010 or later.

Virtual directory

Specify the path to the virtual directory, if using TFS 2010 or later.

Alternative URL

Specify an alternate URL for use if the primary URL is not available.
