  • Hi Arun,

    As out of box, You can sync only few fields as mentioned below,

    ADGUID (UserObject.objectGUID)

     

    Windows User Account (domain\sAMAccountName)

    Windows User Account

    Display Name (UserObject.displayName)

    Display name/Resource name

    Email Address (UserObject.mail)

    Email address

    Department (UserObject.department)

    Group (resource property only)

     Note:

    This does not refer to Project Server security groups.

    It's for PS2007 but i believe that it's true for PS2010 too.

    I used a tool from THe Project group to get the similar things from PS2007 & Active directory. I am not sure if they have somthing for PS2010 now available.

  • Hi,

    I have a related question. Is it possible to avoid that the DisplayName / Resource Name in Project Server will also be overwritten by using the AD-Synchronisation?We are just using the synchronization of the project server security groups.

    Best
