Custom permissions for Project Sharepoint sites (Project permissions mode) Project Server 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello forum members,

    can anyone suggest how to handle the following permissions to be set up for each SharePoint site created per project in Project Server 2013 (Project permission mode)

    Project Owners - custom full rights (remove ability to create new subsites)

    Project Members - contribute rights for all (independent if they have assignments or not)

    Project Visitors - read rights to all employees

  • Hello,

    One option would be to disable the automatic Project Site Sync in the User Sync Settings Page, create custom permission levels and groups on your SharePoint Project site template(s) to meet your requirements - make use of default SharePoint groups where possible, save the new template(s) and attach the new templates to the EPTs. Then develop a Project Server event handler that adds the users to the Project Site on the Publish event (or what ever event you like). The project owner one is simple - just add the project owner to the new SharePoint group, project members - just read the project team and add those users and the visitors just add a domain AD group (Domain Users for example) to that group.

    Default Project Server sync settings / site permissions can be seen here:
