"Page" tab missing for Project Managers and Portfolio Managers in Project Server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • At some point in the last month, the project managers and the portfolio managers lost the "page" tab on their projects. The app uses SharePoint permissions, and the group permissions are unchanged (i.e., they have Design and Manage Subsites).

    I am very baffled by this. Sorry, logs and screenshots cannot be provided from this closed network.

  • Hello Ed

    Provide more details on the steps that reproduce the problem 

    Are you referring to a screen on PWA, SharePoint site, etc.    

    What menu options are showing up

    What are the permissions or group for the user?   Is it just for this use or all users. 

    Was it working and then stop?  Have an windows or SharePoint patches been applied.  What changed in your environment?

  • Personally I would reshare the PWA site with those users with the right groups, eg Portfolio Managers, Project Managers.

  • A light may have come on: does PWA digest global AD groups in its SharePoint groups properly?
