Project Server 2010: User has been added to the PWA Administrator group, as well as Project Leader, but still has limited access to Projects? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Project Server 2010,The User has been added to Project Leader and Administrator groups, since they need to be the highest authority of the application.

    But they still get access denied messages while accessing other people's projects and their access level when checked shows "Limited access".

    Why could this be happening? Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

  • It is likely that the user has a permission denied somewhere, either via one of the following...

    1. Their personal global permissions defined for them (this is aiways a bad idea)

    2. Their personal category permissions if the user has been associated with a category.

    3. Their membership of one of the two groups and a denied permission on the global permissions (again, something denied here is generally a bad idea)

    4. The category permissions associated with the groups that the user is a member of.

    In general, using the deny permission is a bad idea, better to just not allow a permission than deny it outright.  If you are unsure of the permission model in Project Server, please review http://www.applepark.co.uk/project-server-security-explained/
