Manage categories in Project Server 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have SharePoint 2013 and Project 2013 installed on a server. I have provisioned the PWA site and it seems functional now. But I cannot manage categories in the PWA. I dont see the Security section in PWA settings. I want to manage security categories to enable users to create projects.

    Also I need to copy projects from Project Server 2010 to Project server 2013. I dont want to copy the SQL database. Is there any other way to do that? I am administrator on both of the PWA instances.

    Any help would me appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    you can only manage categories, if you run your instance in Project Server permission mode. After creating instance, you need to change this mode with

    Set-SPProjectPermissionMode -url <url> -mode ProjectServer (see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff631142.aspx).

    If you want to get your projects from 2010 to new version without doing a migration, the only option I am aware of, is to save them locally from 2010 and open local files to import or save in new version.

  • I've had some luck with using VBA to cycle through and export all of the
    projects from one instance and then import into another.
     
    Not too hard to do....might post it in the next couple of weeks if I have
    time.
