Project Server 2013 - Team Members Not added to Project Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    Could someone help me with permissions in Project Server 2013.  Whenever a project is created and a team built the Project Site that is created for the Project does not get any permissions except for the site owner's group having the project owner from the Project Details being added to it.  So if Billy is the Project Owner, and adds John, Debbie, and Prasad as resources to the project they are not given any access to the corresponding project site.  Aren't the project sites supposed to be inheriting those permissions?

    Thanks!

  • I think this is handled a little differently because the default permission mode is 'Sharepoint Permission mode' so you'd need to add them to SharePoint groups in Sharepoint Central Administration.

    This article is useful to help you determine which mode works best for your organization:

    This article describes the SharePoint group permissions in SharePoint permission mode:

    I'm sure someone will correct me here if this is inaccurate.

  • Yes, sharepoint permissions mode really changes things.  You'll need to share the Sharepoint site with your users, which can be done by using the Share icon on the site.

  • Following on from the sound advice above, to have Project Server 2013 working the same as previous version, use the Project Server Permission mode. The SharePoint permission is default but can easily be changed with a simple PowerShell script:

  • Hi there,

    That is correct, only the Project Owner (who created the Project originally) is added to the Project Site. The process you have identified is correct, other users have to be added manually. There is no way to give project team members access to the Project Sites automatically when using the SharePoint permission mode without using a custom developed solution.

    Thanks

  • Thanks everyone.

    What I'm hearing then is that in SharePoint permissions mode PWA creates a Team Site for projects, those team sites do not inherit permissions from the parent PWA site, it creates 3 permissions groups <Site>Members, <Site>Visitors, <Site>Owners, and only the project owner is added the <Site>Owners group, no else is added at all.  The workflow then for the project manager is:

    1. Create the Project

    2. Build the Team

    3. Go to the SharePoint Project Site and "build" the team again by sharing the site with them. 

    Is that correct? 

    Step 2 and 3 seem redundant.  Other then turning on the old permissions style, is there a way around having to do step 3 without a custom solution?

    Thanks again everyone!
