  • Well, There is no direct link to securitty from a Enterprise Custom Field. There are two ways I think will help you with this (assuming you are using project server 2010)

    • Create Departments per your company products. Assign the Custom Field, Enterprise project Type, the project and the resource themselves to this department. So the resource beloning to Company product A will only be able to see projects that belong to the department Compnay product A.
    • The other way is to develop a custom workflow/event handler within which you take advantage of the "project Permissions", and dynamically assign permissions once a user gets assigned to a group.
