  • Question

  • I am looking to implement RBS for Project Center 2013. Do any of you have any recommendations for setting up RBS (Role Based Security) for Project Center and SharePoint?

  • Hi Ron,

    RBS is actually Resource Breakdown Structure which applies to the entire Project structure, not just project center. It is a corner stone of the Project Server security model to configure access rights based on the organisation.

    I would suggest to have a look to some article over internet and come back with some specific concern.

  • Hey Ron,

    Think of an RBS as an organizational chart.  For example, you can create a hierarchy of execs, directors, managers, and front line users.  Each of these hierarchy levels can a different security level.  This is an extremely simplified utilization of the RBS.  If you experience a lot of turnover in your organization you might want to avoid using an RBS.  Keeping it up-to-date can be a bear if resources change functional positions often.
