Renamed user lost access to PWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Company changed user naming convention and changed in AD user1@contoso.com to user1-ext@contoso.com. User still has permissions to the PWA site but gets an error "Sorry you don't have access" on the PWA webparts.

    Any ideas on if it is possible to rename a user and not affect his access to Project Online?

  • User name is unique identifier, there is no way it would work after changing the user name.

    If all the users have the same permission you may try creating  an AD group for All PWA user those were renamed and populate it with all Active Directory users and grad access to PWA

  • Hi,

    I was able to make it work for a site collection in Project permissions mode.  I just edited the login field of the project user to match the  new onw coming from AD

    In another instance with SharePoint permissions mode this approach is not working.
