How to allow the access to Project Client from PWA 2010? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm using a PWA 2010 instance and I'm part of the Administrators group.
    From PWA, I want to edit a plan in Project Client 2010.

    I get the mesage "You do not have sufficient permissions to perform the requested action"
    I suppose this a permission I need to activate.
    I looked in the "Project Web App Permissions". I don't find a permission for that.

    I also browse the Global permission of the Admini groups.  All permission are checked except "Manage SharePoint Foundation", "New Task Assignment", "Reassign Task" and "View Business Intelligence Link" which are Denied. 

    Do you know the specific permission or actions to do allow the access to Project Client Professional from PWA.

    Thank you in advance

    You must first create a Project Server login account in Microsoft Project 2010, which I suspect you have not done yet.  Launch Microsoft Project 2010 and then click File > Info > Manage Accounts.  Create a Project Server login account using the exact URL of your PWA.  Remember to select the Choose An Account option and then click OK.  Exit Microsoft Project 2010 and then relaunch the software.  You will see a Login dialog, so click the OK button to log into Project Server from Microsoft Project 2010.  From this point forward, you will be able to edit an enterprise project in Microsoft Project 2010.  Hope this helps.

  • Hello Dale,
    Thank you for your time and answer here.

    Today I connect from the MSP Client to the Server. It works fine.

    I'm also able to access from PWA a project in the MSP client.

    In few words it is working fine. I'm not sure what was wrong yesterday.

    (I have to discuss with  administrator if he did something).

    Thank you again.
