Resource pool synched with AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    With Project Online, is it possible to synch the Enterprise Resources with AD for the first time while there are already some resources created manually?

    Do we have to delete every manually created resource?

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    Yes you can do the sync even with resources already existing in the resource pool. If the resources already there in the resource pool are users too, ensure they are added to the same AD group you are syncing.

    Test on a non-prod PWA instance first to ensure you are happy with the process.

  • Thanks Paul,

    If the resources already there in the resource pool are users too, but there names are not exactly the same, what happens? I guess they will be deactivated in PWA.

    Could you confirm?

  • The names will match as when a resource is also a user you can't enter the display name, this comes AD.
