Project Server 2010 Category Permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • My goal is to allow project team members to see only project, where they are assigned as team members.

    Setting descpription :

    - Created group "Team members (TM)"

    - In group TM selected category "My Projects" with full rights

    - In group TM granted full rights

    - Category "My Projects" Settings :

           - selected project -  <label accessKey="?" for="idChkProjectsTeam">The User is on that project's Project  Team (only choice)</label>

           - all current and future resources

            - all view added to category

    User is assigned to TM group and is assigned to several projects as team member (Built team function). But no project is displayed in Project Center.

    When category settings is changed to "<label accessKey="?" for="idChkProjectsManaged">The User is the Project Owner or the User is the Status Manager on assignments within that Project</label>", project where user is owner are displayed correctly.

    What can be wrong (not displaying team members projects) ?

    Thank you for any advice.

    By default, members of the built-in Team Members group get permission to view their own projects in the Project Center.  This is accomplished via the permissions granted in the interaction between the My Tasks category and the Team Members group.  So, I do not understand what you are attempting to do by creating an entirely new group.  Let us know more and we will try to help.

  • I hope I found solution.

    It is not enough to assign resources to project by Built Team PWA function to display all projects for team member in Project Center (my or default rights settings). It is neccasary to do second step - use function publish (PWA - schedule /edit / publish). After second step projects, where team member is assigned to team are displayed in Project Center.

    So Project server needs to publish info about assigned resources to team to corretly display projects according to rights. A little bit unexpected, but working.

    Can you give me your opinion, advice some different approach ?

    Thanks

    Yes, you have found the solution to your problem.  In Project Server 2010, team members and executives cannot see an enterprise project in PWA until the project manager actually PUBLISHES the project.  This is by design and there is no way to force the system to work any other way.  So, yes, you are right.  Hope this helps.
