AD resource sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello forum members,

    does anyone knows why sometimes after the AD resource sync, some resources are now showing? I can see them as 'Users', but can't find them in the resources view. 

    Upon closer inspection I can see that the 'User can be assigned as a resource' is not checked.

  • Hi Tatiana,

    have you checked if this user is member of AD group, used for resource sync (PWA Settings - Active Directory Enterprise Resource Pool Synchronization)?

    Maybe he is only member of one of the AD groups, used for Group sync (PWA Settings - Manage Groups).

    Have you checked queue, if there are any errors for sync jobs?

  • Hi Tatiana,

    Indeed if the "user can be assigned as a resource" is not checked, the user will only appear in the "manage users" page, not in the resource center. When the option is not checked, the user is not considered as a resource who can be assigned on tasks, so there is no need to see the resource from the resource center. This can be used for example for administrators who need to access PWA but is not assigned on any projects.


    Hope this helps,
