Post-upgrade tasks (Project Server 2013)

Updated: February 5, 2013

Summary: After you upgrade to Project Server 2013, you must address additional tasks.

Applies to:  Project Server 2013 

After upgrading to Project Server 2010, you must address two post-upgrade tasks:

  • Enable Issues and Risks links.

  • Add the Project Server 2013 Enterprise Project Type (EPTs)

Enable Issues and Risks links

After upgrading to Project Server 2013, Issues and Risk links in your upgraded project plans will not function and require the following in order for them to work properly:

  • Bulk update of all project sites – You will need to change the site path information for your upgraded project sites since they have been moved from one Web application to another. You can do this through the Bulk Update Project Sites page in the Project Web App settings located in SharePoint Central Administration. For more information about the Bulk Update Project Sites page, see Bulk Update Project Sites (Project Server 2013 settings).

  • Publish all projects with associated project sites – After updating your site path information for your project sites through the Bulk Update Project Sites page, you will need to publish each project that contains an associated project site. This is required so that the Project Server 2010 links for Issues and Risks are moved to Project Server 2013, which occurs when the project is published. If the project is not published, the link items will not display.

Important Important:

Document library links to tasks in Project Server 2010 are not migrated to Project Server 2010 during the upgrade process. Although your Document library links may function in Project Server 2010, when they are upgraded to Project Server 2013, they will no longer display since they are not upgraded. However, new Document library links can be added in Project Server 2013.

Add the Project Server 2013 Enterprise Project Types

A known issue after you upgrade from Project Server 2010 to Project Server 2013 is that on the Project Center page, if you click New on the ribbon, you only see the Basic Project EPT that was migrated from Project Server 2010. You do not see the two default EPTs that are installed with Project Server 2013:

  • Enterprise Project

  • SharePoint Tasks List

The following procedures allow you to correct this problem so that you can access and use the default EPTs for Project Server 2013. This process requires two procedures:

  • Add the SharePoint Tasks Lists EPT

  • Rename the Basic Project EPT to "Enterprise Project"

After you complete the procedures, the Enterprise Project Types page displays the SharePoint Tasks Lists and Enterprise Project EPTs.

To add the SharePoint Tasks List as an Enterprise Project Type

  1. In Project Web App, click the Settings icon, and then click Project Web App Settings.

  2. On the Project Web App settings page, in the Workflow and Project Details Pages section, click Enterprise Project Types.

  3. On the Enterprise Project Types page, click New Enterprise Project Type.

  4. On the Add Enterprise Project Type page, enter the information needed for the SharePoint Tasks List enterprise project type:

    • For the Name field, type SharePoint Tasks List.

    • For the Description field, type Use this type to create a SharePoint Tasks List Project with some basic information (like name, start date, end date) and a schedule.

    • In the SharePoint Tasks List Project section, select Create new projects as SharePoint Tasks List Projects.

    • In the New Project Page/Project Details Pages section, in the New Project Page list, select Project Details. In the Available Project Details Pages list, move Project Details and Schedule to the box on the right. Use the Up/Down buttons to ensure that Project Details is listed first and Schedule is listed second.

    • In the Defaults section, select Use this as the default Enterprise Project Type during Project Creation.

    • In the Image section, in the Type the URL field, type /_layouts/15/inc/pwa/images/CenterNormalProject.png. This specifies the location of the default image for the SharePoint Tasks List EPT. Click Click here to test to verify that the image is found in the default location.

  5. Leave each of the other options with the default value, and then click Save.

To rename the Basic Project Enterprise Project Type

  1. In Project Web App, click the Settings icon, and then click Project Web App Settings.

  2. On the Project Web App settings page, in the Workflow and Project Details Pages section, click Enterprise Project Types.

  3. On the Enterprise Project Types page, in the Name column, click Basic Project.

  4. On the Basic Project page, in the Name field, change the text to Enterprise Project, and then click OK.

  5. Click Save. The Enterprise Project EPT now displays on the Enterprise Project Types page.
