    How work the "Inherited Permissions" from parent in Project Server 2007 workspaces.

  • Hi WLID,

    Basically the permissions for each Project Server workspaces are synchronised with users on the Project Team.  You can find which groups within project are synch'd with which SharePoint groups by going into Server Settings | Project Workspace Provisioning settings - there is a description at the bottom.  However, the basic data is

    1. Project Manager - gets full permissions on the workspace

    2. Team member with Assignment - gets write permissions on the workspace

    3. Team member without Assignment - gets read permissions on the workspace.

     

    4. Executives get read permissions on ALL workspaces.

    There isn't much you can do to change this, it is hard coded.  If you wanted fuller control (and the associated admin effort) you can turn off the automatic Provisioning and synchronisation.

  • Any way to alter it so that team members only get READ permission, independent of whether or not they are assigned any tasks?  If not, what's involved in developing custom automated provisioning to accomplish this?

  • Hi Ken,

    In short the answer is no, and I don't even know if you could automate this with custom code.  Worth trying the project developer forum.
