Only project owners should view their plan and not other project managers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    WE might have done some problem with categories or security templates or groups.

    For some reason in the instance developed all project managers can see all the other projects created by other managers.

    How could we restrict this so that, only the owner of the plan can view the project or only status managers can see the plan when they login to the webinstance or project professional

    thanks

  • Hi Max_Pin

    Basically you can set it at Category level.

    • If you have Groups & Categories then ensure to select the first check box in category

    • And if applied the RBS security ensure to uncheck the last check box in category.

    I think the following link will be helpful to you.

    In that case I will advice you to ensure that there should not be any projects in the "selected projects" box. And select the the first check box && at the same time uncheck the second check box.

    Thanks

  • Best way is to select My Projects category for all your Project Managers and apply Project Manager to My Projects category.

    Possibility is that you are assigning My Organization Category permissions to your PMs or My Projects category is modified.

  • thanks for the responses Abhijeet and Manish,

    Just another question.

    Through project centre, we pm goes to GoTo>checkin my projects, can we limit the owner to see only his projects in checked-out state as currently they can see all the projects checked out andd can check in other project plans too

    Thanks

    Hey

    As soon as you implement the correct security the PMs will not be able to see other PM's projects at any location in the PWA.

  • This is co-related. This is problem with your permissions settings.
    Currently your PMs have got permissions of higher level and hence they are able to see all projects in Check-in.
    Once you correct permissions everything will be limited their own projects.
