User Sync Jobs are damn slow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Experts

    I am the admin for Project Server 2010. When ever i modify any existing user in Manager User it triggers below jobs and taking lot of time to completing the job (approx 20 minutes per user). Its impacting other Save and Publish jobs as well

    Above scenario is for single user. If remove / add any user from the Groups (10 users in the group) it triggers 10 * 4 = 40 jobs.Its impacting the performance on manage queue jobs

    Please make a note that jobs never fails only issue with taking lot time than expected.

    Any Idea how to resolve this?

  • What many people used to do in this situation (maybe still do) is turn off the site security sync.  That will speed up this process.

    Then you would just need to add users directly to sites.

  • Hi Santosh,

      That is the default behavior of the tool, considering the fact that you need to keep the security for sites and Project in Sync on any modification of user role you would have to bear with it. 

       Else if keeping the security model in sync is not of much interest then in that case you can proceed with disabling the sync (which I doubt should be done). considering change in your Project Org roles e.g. between a PM and a PMO

        Paul's recommendation is also good.

  • Thanks all for reply

    Default behavior is not acceptable because i am Admin for 2000+ PWA sites. I never face this issue.

    Let me know if you need any other info
