Change Owner in Project Server after CU Dec RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to understand how changing owners work.

    I tried to change the Owner in a PDP and saving with this result:

    - The old Owner still has permissions in the workflow, the Gantt and the related site.

    - The new Owner just has permissions in the workflow and the Gantt.

    So I tried another step, changing the Status Manager and publishing. The result was:

    - The old Owner just has permissions in the site.

    - The new Owner has permissions everywhere but the site.

    Can I do it without using manual sync? Reducing administrative work sounds great! ;)

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi there,

    Unfortunately the manual sync is the only option I know of out of the box without custom development.

  • If I am correct are you referring to the Permissions needs to get synchronized with Project Sites whenever you change someone / add / remove in project Plan?

    If this is the scenario then can you give a look at Server Setting>Project Site Provisioning Settings in PWA. You will find this option under the head Operational Policies.

    Just tick the below tick mark.

  • This will work for users added / removed from the project plan, but doesn't work when you change the project owner (not when I've tested this anyway!)

  • Thanks Paul.

    I was little unclear on the question and initially thought its for the routine project user additions.

  • Thanks!

    Not great news, but at least I can't stop searching ;). Hope this change will come with the new Cumulative!
