OData access forbidden RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I have Excel reports based on PWA using OData. My users can't update these reports.

    PWA is in Project permission mode and users belong to a have group with "Project Server Reporting Service" option enabled in Globale permission. 

    The only solution I found, is to assign a MS Project licence to these users !

    Is there a solution to avoid assigning a MS Project licence to users ?

  • Hi,

    I think there is a misunderstanding here.

    The first step to grant access to a user to access Project data, even if it is only through reporting, is to assign a valid Project Online licence. Then you can add the user in a security group. 

    To resume, any user does need a valid Project Online licence to read/write Project Online data. It includes reading reports with Project Online data in Excel, SSRS, PowerBI, Apps....

    Hope this helps,
