PS 2013 - Edit an inactive resource with an invalid user account. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, after an user was deleted from the AD and set inactive with the next sync, how can I still make changes to that resource? Seems I cannot save any changes to Enterprise Fields without a valid Logon-Account. 

    Thanks

  • Hi Arne, try to convert this user to Generic Work Resources, may this can help you to change Resource CF.

  • Hi, 

    When you delete some user from your AD, the next sync that users are inactive now, so, if you want to edit some CF, you need to enter to Resource Center, check or select this user and then select from ribbon "Edit Resource", after that, you'll able to set this user like generic check this image, for 2013 dosen't works, in which version you work??? let me try to find out this for 2013. Read this post for 2013

  • Yes, this isn't possible as of now as the user account specified is validated with AD when we are trying to edit and save it.
