Default group permissions in Project Server 2013

Published: July 16, 2012

Summary: Project Server 2013 default security groups have defined global permissions to allow you to access and use features and functionality.

Applies to:  Project Server 2013 

Important Important:

The Project Server 2013 environment must be in Project Permission Mode in order to view categories, groups, and other security settings. For more information about Project Permission Mode, see Plan user access in Project Server 2013.

This article describes the global permissions that are given to the default templates and security groups in Project Server 2013.

Project Server 2013 creates seven default groups during installation:

  • Administrators

  • Portfolio Managers

  • Portfolio Viewers

  • Project Managers

  • Resource Managers

  • Team Leads

  • Team Members

Each group is given a default set of global permissions. Templates are also included to allow these default permissions to be assigned to new groups created by the administrator. After you use the template to create a new group, you can then choose to customize the new group to better suit your users by editing the permission for the group.

Global permissions differ from category permissions in that they apply to functionality that the user is allowed to do throughout Project Server 2013. In order to work with specific projects or resources, users must have access to them through a category to which the project or resource is added. The users are only allowed to do tasks with these specific projects and resources through the category permissions defined in the category. For more detailed information about groups and categories, see Plan groups, categories, and RBS in Project Server 2013.

note Note:

For information about the default categories that are associated to default security groups, as well their corresponding category permissions, see Default categories in Project Server 2013.
