How to restrict Users from editing pages in Project Server 2013/SharePoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a fairly vanilla, on-premise Project Server 2013 platform whereby all Users can see data, project sites etc.  i.e. Securing sites in terms of project site content is not important to the client.

    What is important however is the need to prevent Users from being able to do the following, without breaking inheritance and without turning off Project Site Sync, as this adds enormous costs to system support and maintenance...

    - ‘Delete this site’ (via the 'cog' > site settings > site actions; at PWA root and all Project Sites)

    - Edit this Page (via the 'cog'; at PWA root and all Project Sites)

    - Apply changes to themes, colours etc (at PWA root and all Project Sites)

    Essentially we need to lock the look and feel of the sites down (and prevent Users from clicking 'Delete this site'!!), how do we go about this without having to break site inheiritance/edit permissions for every single site page, as this article suggests?

    Choices aren't great - appreciate any guidance you can offer us.
