Project Server 2010 Resource Assigments - Need a license for every Resource? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to determine the requirements for Project Server 2010 licenses.

    In Project Server 2010, I need to add resources to the pool, then assign a resource to a project task.  The task will be maintained/statused through a manager, not the resource.  

    Does that resource need to have a Project Server license even if the resource never accesses Project Server even through PWA?

  • Hi JenKranich,

    You need licences only for users that will access Project Server data by any means : MS Project Pro, Sharepoint sites and/or PWA.

    But resources not associated with users are not "real person" accessing data but just informal entity, thus no need for licences for those resources.

    It is important to note that if those resources can access the SharePoint site, since it contains Project Server data (risks, issues, deliverables), then they DO need a licence.

    Hope this helps.
