Project Server Users in Federated Scenario RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an interesting problem with a hosted customer of ours.  In 2010, it worked beautifully; a federated Project Server against a SAML 2.0 environment. In 2013, it went horribly wrong. The nice new feature of 2013 where it LOCKS the Display Name and Email address fields now prevent the system from "Syncing" to the Federated credentials and OVERWRITES the Email Address field with a "Undefined" value and REPLACES our existing Display Name with their federated login id which happens to be their email address. Has anyone seen this before? The action stems from the new live sync to Active Directory and I understand that; however in federation, we don't have a LIVE sync to Active Directory. I think this may be a bug; and specific to Project Server. The SHAREPOINT User Account is fine, and the Display Name/Email address are intact.  Any thoughts?
