Project Server 2010 Document permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • How is this possible in Project server 2010?

    I want to allow only a few particular users to be able to access some project documents. Without creating an extra group?

    I want to allow a Project manager to be able to change the user rights to his Project documents? he is part of the Project manager group already

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi there,

    Security at the authentication level is tightly integrated between Project Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010, whereas user and group authorization is handled separately by Project Server 2010. When a project is published, if the server was configured to enable it, a project workspace site is created. You can configure Project Server 2010 to automatically synchronize Microsoft Project Web App (PWA) users with Project sites when they are created, when projects are published, and when user permissions change in PWA. if you remove the permission of Team member role (View Items  -  View items in lists and documents in document libraries. ), they cannot view the documents which is not a good solution because they need to a this permission.

    Let the project manager create a folder in Project Document folder & uplaod all confedential the documents there. PM can provide the Folder level permissions using Manage permissions, stop inheriting & then add the accounts who requires the same. Without creating extra group, will be a time consuming job.

    Hope that helps.
