Project Permission Sync Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • The PWA Settings page in Project Server 2013 has the option 'Manage User Sync Settings'.

    Clicking on it opens the 'Project Permission Sync Settings' page with following options:

      • Enable Project Web App Sync
      • Enable Project Site Sync
      • Enable Project Site Sync for SharePoint Tasks List Projects

    What does each of these options exactly do? Which data is synced with each setting?

    There seems to be no documentation about these options.

    Thank you

  • 1. Project Server can be set in two security modes, SharePoint and Project Server mode.

    When your PWA set with Project Server security mode, "Enable Project Web App Sync" is must to sync assignments with project plan with associated Project Sites

    2. Will enable sync between project plans and sites

    3. "Enable Project Site Sync for SharePoint Tasks List Projects" if your plan is associated with SharePoint Tasks list

    Check the box "Enable Project Site Sync for SharePoint Tasks List Projects" if you want to have users automatically added to these types of Project Sites as well.
