How to prevent project manager not to add libraries in pwa site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Out of the box, project managers and team members can add and delete libraries on the PWA site.  There are articles about giving them permissions as Reader on PWA site and remove certain permissions.  But, the PProject Workspace Membership Sync process will erase any permissions set.  So, a custom timer job is recommended so that we can enforce our own permissions. 

    Is there any other methods to prevent them from editing the PWA site?

  • Hi Nico,

    I just re-tested.  On the PWA site, I removed all permissions except View Pages and Open in Site Permissions.  But, the pm can still create a library on the PWA site.

    http://projectserverblogs.com - Adjust the default Project web access permission levels and create a custom timer job to enforce changes to PWA permission levels.

    We use Project Server 2010.

    Thanks.

  • I might be mistaken, but I think the synchronization does not modify the security levels on the site, so what you might try to do is to go to Site Settings --> Site Permissions --> Permission Levels.

    Here you can then change the permission for the (e.g.) Project Manager role, disallowing the stuff you do not want to do.  I have just checked, this does not role down to the client sites (so you can take Delete Items away from the role at the PWA site, but still allow them this permission in their own sites).  I also made some changes to the group membership and it does not seem to revert the security level back to the defaults.
