Project Server changes the permissions automatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody

    I've already searched the internet for a solution and unfortunately haven't found anything. Following case: The overnight patch changes every time the given permissions. That means that the patch deletes some permissions or that he gives permissions to people who shouldn't have permissions on specified projects. Do you have any idea what could be the issue?

    Kind regards

  • Roman - have you got either the Enterprise Resource Pool or one or more Security Groups synchronising with Project Server?

    If you do then you may be experiencing situations where a user has been removed from an AD group and as a result is removed or marked as inactive in a security group. Active Directory has primacy over project server, changes in AD impose upon Project Server.

  • HI,

    When the workspace sync happens it removes the users who are not present in the project and only adds the users who are present in the project as resources.

    If you are adding any users to the project group who are not present in the project, then they will be removed when the sync happens. To avoid this you can create a SharePoint group and then add users to that group. Any SharePoint group will not be touched when the sync happens.
