  • Hi,

    a site collection administrator should be able to see this section and can revert your change.

  • Hi,

    If you just removed  "Manage Groups and users" from global permissions for admins, find just a colleague you trust and who is a resource :). Edit this resource and enable admin permissions for this resource in Global permissions. Ask this resource afterwards to re-enable permissions for Administrator group. Remove the personal permissions of this resource afterwards

    If you changed permission mode from "Project Server permission mode" to "SharePoint Server permission mode by mistake, you need to re-enable "Project Server permission mode" using PowerShell. Your previously defined permissions are lost in this case and you have to re-configure.

  • Hi,

    are you able to edit resources (not users)? If so, can you modify group section or is this also disabled?

    Can you edit global permissions for resources?

  • Hi,

    do you have a test environment? If so, get a backup of your Project Server databases and disable there the manager users und group permissions. Then you can try the following: http://www.sharepointjunkies.com/losing-administration-permission-on-project-server-2013/

    If you don't have a test environment please let me know. Currently I have no time to test but I can try tomorrow or on Thursday.

    Regards
