Synchronize PWA Site Root Permissions to Newly Created Projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Everyone,

    I need to implement an Event Handler that automatically synchronizes permissions specified at the PWA root with permissions for the project and its associated sharepoint workspace. The built-in synchronization option 'automatically synchronize Project Web App users with Project Sites when they are created' is not working for us.

    I was hoping a simple call such as

    WssInteropWS.WssInterop.QueueSynchronizeMembershipForWssSite( e.ProjectGuid, job );

    would solve the problem, but this raises a GeneralQueueJobFailure.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi Paul,

    I am sure that you know project site is created when the project is created & published. Are you calling the QueueSynchronizeMembershipForWssSite when the project is created event. Can you please try for onpublished event & see if that works.The built-in synchronization option 'automatically synchronize Project Web App users with Project Sites  fires wehn the project is published.

    Did you try debugging the event handler to see if that returns any project site url which needs to ne synchronized on created event?

  • Thanks for your help Amit,

    I was using the project created event, and I have tried using the onPublished event to no avail. In the code below, projectWorkspaceUrl = http://server:port/pwa, and i append the name of the project to get the web url. Using this url i try to get the SPWeb for the project's workspace, but it returns an error "Cannot set permissions on root level site PWA"

    try {
                SPWeb myNewWeb = GetSPWeb( projectWorkspaceUrl + "/" + projectName.Replace( " ", "%20" ) + "/" );
                ULSLogHelper.WriteCommentToULSLog( "Completed" );
