The New-SPProjectSiteAdministrator cmdlet creates a Project Web App administrator account for the requested user.

Specifies the Project Web App on which to add the administrator account. The account designated by the AdminAccount parameter will be added to the Administrators group on Project Web App.




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.

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.


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

This example adds domain\user as an administrator to the PWA instance that is hosted at http://servername/pwa.
