Sharepoint Group not synced with Project server groups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    The Sharepoint groups that created by project server are not synchronised with project server groups.

    i.e. the memebrs in the shharepoint group called "Team members group (Microsoft Project Server)" are not updated from the project server group called "Team members"

    am I missing thing?

  • Hello Mohammad,

    Did you try to publish a project which has resource assigned & verify the user's access on work space. DId the user sync job run successfully? Users who have been added to the project or who have been granted Manage SharePoint Foundation permission in Project Server 2010 are added to at least one of four (Team members group) SharePoint Server 2010 groups. Security at the authentication level is tightly integrated between Project Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010, whereas user and group authorization is handled separately by Project Server 2010. When a project is published, if the server was configured to enable it, a project work space site is created. did you verify that in project workspace provisioning settings you have configure Project Server 2010 to automatically synchronize Microsoft Project Web App (PWA) users with Project sites when they are created, when projects are published, and when user permissions change in PWA.

  • Thanks for trying to help, but this is not my problem.

    my problem is not with the workspaces, its with the lists  in the PWA. like workflow approvals task list. the PM's are getting access denied error.

    I have to grant permissions to them manually in the list settings.

  • Mohammad,

    Team members group (Microsoft Project Server) is a project workspace group, and operates based on what permissions the user has on a specific projects. That is why you are not seeing it directly synchronized with the Team Members group.

    As for the issue with Lists in PWA, you need to have the group permissions, Manage Lists in PWA, in addition to other required permissions for that group.

    The other alternative is obviously to manage permissions directly on the list.
