Switch to #ProjectServer #Permission mode from #SharePoint permission mode
This post will help you to find key feature of Project Server 2013, Security Settings in Project Server 2013, that used to be under server settings of Project Server 2010.
With the introduction to new security mode in Project Server 2013, i.e. :SharePoint Permission mode, your new PWA by default will provision with SharePoint permission mode and hence you will find Security section missing from PWA server settings page.
Advantages, and what is enabled and what is not, while staying with SharePoint security mode are detailed here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fp161361.aspx
Out of the above article, and with R&D i have done so far, the major features you were not be able to use in SharePoint security mode are as follows:
- Unable to edit default permission of groups
In order to switch the permission mode back to Project mode, use the following windows powershell cmdlet:
Set-SPProjectPermissionMode [-Url] <Uri> [-Mode] <SharePoint | ProjectServer | UninitializedSharePoint | UninitializedProjectServer> [[-AdministratorAccount] <String>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]
For detail of above cmdlet, see this technet article:: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219486.aspx
Once the prompt will be back after execution, refresh the PWA server settings page to see the Security group available to be used.
Note that Switching security modes deletes all permissions configuration information for the specified Project Web App instance and reverts to the default settings for the specified mode. You need to be carefully planning this well in advance that which security mode you have to configure.
