Active Directory and Resource Fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone point me to a definitive guide as to what information from Active Directory is passed to Resource Fields in Project Online, if there are any "watch-outs" or best practice for syncing with AD and if there are any ways to extend the passing of data from AD to Project Online beyond what is permitted by default.

    I am dealing with a customer where in their instance of Project Online the "Group" resource field (not the resource security group) is being populated by data from the "Office" field in Active Directory - however changes to the values in this field in AD do not seem to pass through to Project Online when the Resource Pool is Synced with AD.

    Wisdom and experience of the forum members is appreciated.

    With good wishes,
