Project Site Provisioning Settings (Project Server 2010 settings)

Published: March 31, 2011

Project Site Provisioning Settings are available through the Microsoft Project Server 2010 Server Settings page in the Operational Policies section. For more information about related administrative settings, see Operational Policies (Project Server 2010 settings).

Configure Project Site Provisioning Settings

The Project Site Provisioning Settings page let you configure settings for the project sites that are created for projects. You can configure the following settings:

Site URL

The Site URL settings let you change the default Web application in which your project sites are created. The default site URL information on this page is based on the information that is provided during the provisioning of the Project Web App instance.

To specify site URL information

  1. On the Server Settings page, in the Operational Policies section, click Project Site Provisioning Settings.

  2. On the Project Site Provisioning Settings page, in the Site URL section, specify a default Web application that your project sites will be created from. Select the Web application from the Default Web application menu.

  3. In the Site URL field, type the URL path (for example, PWA).

  4. Click Save.

Default Site Properties

The Default Site Properties settings let you select the default site template language and the default project site template that will be used to create your project sites.

When you select a project site template, you can only use the Microsoft Project Site template that installs with Project Server 2010 or a template that is derived from it. The Microsoft Project Site template is built to support features and functionality in SharePoint Server 2010.

Important Important:

Project Server 2010 and Office Project Server 2007 do not support the use of the Project Tracking Workspace template from the SharePoint Server 2010 "Fab 40" templates to create project sites. For more information, see Project Server 2010 –The Fab 40 Strikes Again! (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=214559) on the Microsoft Project Support Weblog.

To configure default site properties for your Project Sites

  1. On the Server Settings page, in the Operational Policies section, click Project Site Provisioning Settings.

  2. On the Project Site Provisioning Settings page, in the Default Site Properties section, select the default language for your project sites from the Default site template language drop-down list.

  3. In the Default Project Site template drop-down list, select the project site template that will be used to create your project sites.

  4. Click Save.

Automatic Provisioning

The Automatic Provisioning setting lets you indicate whether you want to have Project Server 2010 create project sites for projects when the projects are newly published to the server. Or, the settings can be configured to allow the Project Server Administrator to create project sites manually after projects have been published, if you prefer.

note Note:

If you have a group of project managers who will not need to create project sites, you can set the provision mode to Allow users to manually crate project sites in Project Server as noted earlier in this section. Additionally, denying this group of users the Manage SharePoint Foundation global permission eliminates the display of a Publish Project Site dialog box that typically appears when a project is created.

To configure the Automatic Provisioning setting

  1. On the Server Settings page, in the Operational Policies section, click Project Site Provisioning Settings.

  2. On the Project Site Provisioning Settings page, in the Automatic Provisioning section, select one of the two Provisioning mode options:

    • Automatically create a project site for each project when first published to Project Server

    • Allow users to manually create project sites in Project Server

  3. Click Save.

Project Site Permissions

The Project Site Permissions setting lets you grant access to project sites in Project Server 2010. This setting lets you automatically synchronize Project Web App users with project sites in the following circumstances:

  • When project sites are created

  • When project managers publish projects

  • When user permissions change in Project Server 2010

When the Project Site Permissions setting is enabled, the following things occur automatically when any of the circumstances named in the previous list occur:

  • Project managers who have published a project or who have Save Project permissions on a project are added to the Project Managers (Microsoft Project Server) site group.

  • Team members with assignments in a project are added to the Team Members (Microsoft Project Server) site group.

  • Other Project Server users who have View Project Site permission on a project are added to the Readers (Microsoft Project Server) site group.

To enable the Project Site Permissions setting

  1. On the Server Settings page, in the Operational Policies section, click Project Site Provisioning Settings.

  2. On the Project Site Provisioning Settings page, in Project Site Permissions section, click Check to automatically synchronize Project Web App users with Project Sites when they are created, when project managers publish projects, and when user permissions change in Project Server. When the check box is cleared, Project Server users are never synchronized with project sites.

  3. Click Save.

When the check box is cleared, users are not automatically added to their respective Web sites. To add or update users to their sites, click the Synchronize button on the Project Sites page of the Operational Policies section of Project Web App Server Settings.
