We've set up a project area based on the scrum process tempalte.
Every time I invite a team member, three work items are created.

Where can I disable this "feature"?

greetings georg.

The relevant setting is Follow-up action for "Generate Team Invitation"
Can be found under Team Configuration->Operational Behavior->Generate Team Invitation->Create Initial workitems.

Hello George

I am not sure if every invitation would create more work items. However, I do see that when you create a newer Team Area a few work items are created. If that is the case, you could work on the following:

In the Eclipse client if you open the Project Area and go to the "Process Configuration" tab -> Expand Project Configuration -> Project Area Initialization
You could check the project Initialization parameters, to be specific the server follow up section for "create team Areas"

Look for Work Item templates.

Hi Ralph,
isn't it the configuration for the workitems like "define permissions" "define team members" and so on the administrator got, after creating the project area?

Dang, no, after looking at it, it appears to be the one that actually just runs the query to show the work items that are generated when the Generate Team Invitation follow-up action runs. Piotr is right.

I will delete my posts to avoid confusing people.

May I ask what process template are you using? this should be defined in a follow-up action.

It's the Scrum template ID: deployed with the standard installtion.
