Logs shows - Permission denie for ManageServerConfiguration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    While going through the log files, I have noticed every user except admins are getting this error.

    This error is getting generated when user connects PWA with Project client but user didn't get any such error on their screen

    In the ULS log:

    Permission denied: User i:0#.w|xyz03\pajemi00 does not have global permission 'ManageServerConfiguration'. StackTrace:  

     at Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.SecurityAuthorization.AccessCheckGlobal(Guid globalPermissionUid)

    Can anyone please help me to get to know what is the actual reason as it may impact users in future.

    Thanks in advance

  • Are you using the standard out of the box permissions for PWA?

    Remove the "Manage Server Configuration" permission in all groups except the ADMINISTRATORS group and be sure that you are not using the DENY action in any groups for permission.
