Project Server 2010 default group permissions

 

Applies to: Project Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2010-07-06

In this article:

This article describes the default permissions that are given to the default templates and user groups in Microsoft Project Server 2010.

Project Server 2010 creates seven default groups during installation:

  • Administrators

  • Executives

  • Portfolio Managers

  • Project Managers

  • Resource Managers

  • Team Leads

  • Team Members

Each group is given a default set of permissions (global and category). Templates are also included to allow these default permissions to be assigned to new groups created by the administrator. After using 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 use in Project Server 2010. Category permissions apply to what users are allowed to do with specific projects, resources, and views as defined by the category that the group is associated with. For more information about groups and categories, see Plan groups, categories, and RBS in Project Server 2010.

The following table contains a list of the default global permissions for each of the default user groups.

The following table contains a list of the default category permissions for each of the default user groups.

Use the following legend for the table below.

  • My Org = My Organization

  • My Dir = My Direct Reports

  • My Proj = My Projects

  • My Res = My Resources

  • My Tsks = My Tasks

For example, a user in the default Administrators group (who is associated to the My Organization category by default) has permissions allowed in the Administrators column in the table. These category permissions only apply to all projects, resources, and views selected for the My Organization category. However, a user in the default Project Managers group (who is associated to the My Organization and My Projects categories) has a different set of category permissions for the objects in the My Organization category. This allows you to conveniently set a more or less restrictive set of permissions for different types of users to a group of projects, resources, and views.

For more information about groups and categories, see Plan groups, categories, and RBS in Project Server 2010.
