Project Server 2010

Published: May 12, 2010

Removes an account from a Microsoft Project Web App (PWA) instance.

Remove-SPProjectSiteAdministrator -AdminAccount <String> -Url <String> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]



Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the name of the user to remove, in the form domain\user or user@domain.




Specifies the PWA site where the user account is located.




Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

note Note:

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Detailed Description

You can remove an account from a PWA instance by running the Remove-SPProjectSiteAdministrator cmdlet.

When the cmdlet is successfully run, the requested user account is deleted. All assignments made to that user are lost. This cmdlet can be used to remove any Project Web App user account, not just members of the Project Web App Administrators group.

Return Types



Remove-SPProjectSiteAdministrator -AdminAccount domain\user -Url http://servername/pwa
