         I have 2 issues

    1) When i login to project server and im on the homepage there is a project web app webpart i think project center that lists all the project sites.
    But there is a particular project that is not visible from there and everyone with high level access and full access cant see this project.

    I can get to the project site directly but not listed in project web app webpart  listing all the project sites.

    Also when i try to get to it directly like this:

    I still get  Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you

    2)      I cant access project server i mean the first home page as Site Collection Admin i get error

    Hi all,

    I am having a quite strange issue with my project server 2010 implementation.

    Basically I have an installation perfectly working by iexplore browser: I can connect from inside and from outside (ie another network segment or internet) as expected.

    The problem arises when I try to connect by Project professional 2010 as project manager user. Inside my network everything is ok but when I try to connect from another network segment or from internet, I get "you do not have sufficient permissions" error. The same user can connect using project pro if the client computer in the same server network. Moreover administrator users can always connect by project pro inside or outside server network!

    Is there any source subnet mask filternig (or something like that) option among the server options? I am quite sure that there is no firewall block otherwise administrator user should be blocked too.

    Is there any detailed log showing the reason for this error or is it possible to enable any debug option?

    I am not very confident with server options so if you can help please explain it in details or by sending a screenshot.

    Currently we are utilizing the 'Std Rate' as a reference to calculate cost of each resource in a project. We are not updating the ‘Std.Rate’ in Enterprise level through Resource Center screen because rates of the resource may be different for each project. 

    The problem is, whenever I update the ‘Std. Rate’ field for each enterprise resource through MS Project, the value is automatically reset when re-opening the project file (if connected to PWA). It doesn’t happen when I save the project file locally. We have also looked through Custom Field at MS Project and tried to use one of resource field available there (type of Cost) but we are unable to enter any value even in Resource Sheet view. It seems that the value only entered at the task level from Resource Usage view.

    Is there any approach to bring this ‘Std.Rate’ field to project level and allow us to edit it through MS Project without being overridden every time we publish the project? If it is not possible, what would be the best approach to address this? Thank you for the suggestion

    I am currently using Project Online to manage two separate portfolios with completely different business drivers.  The "Project Strategic Impact" web part reflects all active drivers without the ability to filter.  This means that when people fill out the project details page for a project in either portfolio they see additional business drivers for the other portfolio that do not pertain to what they're trying to accomplish.  Is there a way to provide business drivers for new projects filtered by enterprise project type?

    Hi. While trying to edit the schedule from PWA, I am getting an error as:

    An error occurred while opening your project. Give us a few minutes and try again. If this happens again, contact your administrator.

    Also, trying to open the project from Project Pro gives an error as : Could not check In the Project.

    The ULS logs show this error for that user:

    User does not have category permission 'SaveProtectedBaseline' on project ................

    Another PM is unable to open a master project by the general method of highlighting 2 projects in PWA Project Center and choosing to "open in Project Professional for editing". I am able to do so with no problem using the same projects.  We both have the same admin rights in Project Server. He does not receive any error, Pro just opens up an empty project.  The curious thing is that he can get this to work if he changes from auto-scheduled to manual task mode.  I actually read about someone else who stated the same thing (which doesn't make any sense to me) although I'm not being allowed to add a link to that previous article, which was on the office 2010-project forum under "unable-to-insert-a-subproject-into-master-project": 

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I am running MS Project Server 2010 and TFS 2012.

    I have been working with TFS and Project and Project Server integrated for many months. However, I have run into this problem 3 times in the past 5 months. The first couple times, after finding no resolution, I was forced to restore backups for the affected projects.

    I receive the error when Refreshing from the Team menu in MS Project 2010, I received the following error, "TF82039: Team Foundation was unable to modify the project plan. Please fix the problem and try again."

    I turned on error logging using, "winproj.exe.config".  Below is a subset of what was captured. However, I don't know how to make sense of this.

    I'd like to resolve the error, but I don't know what's causing it. Assistance in interpreting this file to find the cause would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping there is a way to use one of the ids in the error message to either track it back to the line item causing the problem in the project or the TFS item.

    I have a project, in which resources are allocated to the tasks.

    I open two projects at a time and open Resource Usage view, I see red colour indication for the resources even they are not overallocated( I mean in Resource usage view in Timephase grid I can see 8hrs per day in Red color)

    May I know why is that?

  • 06/25/15--00:59: Resource Levelling
  • Hi,

    I face Resource Overallocation issue in MS Project Server 2013.

    I tried levelling a resource using MS Project, when I click Resource Levelling, resource is levelled but for some days there is no allocation. (i.e. For instance a resource is overallocated for 2months, when I click levelling, all days he has been allocated 8hrs but few days no allocations(Gap) are there, I mean excluding holidays I see some gap)

    What is the cause of this problem?

    I had created a couple of projects and published them (without creating project sites yet).  I then created a master project from those 2 projects and, when I published the Master Project, chose to provision a site for it.  However, I got an error when I tried to access the Master Project Site.  I went to "Server Settings|Operational Policies|Project Sites" and found that the master project site was created, however, Project Server associated it with one of the sub-projects instead.  I was able to fix this by standard methods:

    1. Going to "Server Settings|Operational Policies|Project Sites" and deleting the incorrect Master Project Site URL from the sub-project (after copying the URL)
    2. Editing the (empty) project site entry for the Master Project to associate it with the copied Master Project Site URL
    3. Synchronizing 

    I then was also able to go into the sub-project and, when I published, create a new project site as a sub-site of the Master Project.  My question is whether it is valid to create a Master Project Site with published sub-projects that don't have sites or whether this is a problem with Project Server (and, if so, is it going to be fixed).

    I am facing an issue:

    I assign a resource on 1 task, that resource submits the task with 100% complete (that resource is added in auto approval of task submission - so his tasks are automaticaly parked in completed tasks) 

    For that task, when I see in "Schedule" PDP, it shows 0% Complete. And when I edit the PDP, it shows the 100% and requires Pubish to reflect in Project Plan. 

    Why this is happening? What are the causes that it doesn't update % Complete?

    BSM Bug - When there is one resource in resource plan , line managers cannot drag data from one cell to another, (it works with more than one resource)

    (Drag the bottom-right corner of a cell to repeat data to other cells)



    1-     Open any project in PWA (QA or Production)

    2-     Go to Project tab > Project Permissions

    3-     Build Team

    4-     Add one resource > save and close

    5-     Add data in one of the fields then try to drag it to other cells


    Data cannot be dragged if there is only one resource.


    If there are more than one resource

    i have tested this in two environments getting same results  ,

    Anyone here can test this for me in project server 2010 ?

    Do you think this is a BUG

  • 06/26/15--02:10: Maximum Administrative Lines
  • Hi,

    We currently use our Administrative Lines for system bookings, rather than project bookings, due to the fact we have 200+ separate systems to book to.  We also use this for the predictive booking function.

    I'm just wondering if anyone knows what is the maximum number of administrative lines allowed/recommended?

    Many Thanks,

  • 06/26/15--08:12: Resource Plan Work
  • Hi, when I see a value for Resource Plan Work appearing in the reporting database do I take it that the value is only present for the time span for when the Resource Plan utilisation has been set to come from the Resource Plan either totally or after a point in the project plan?

    I need to know that when I run a graph of assignment work stacked alongside resource plan work that there is no overlap/double counting for a given period.

    thanks in advance

    We have an on-premise Project Server 2013 and were looking to use Project Lite...However, I dont see anything which allows me to use Project Lite with Project Server on-premise.  The Project Lite page says that it can be used with Project Online or Project Server on-premise....but how this can be done technically is still a mystery....I have read and yet to see any article or any guidance....

    I have an API app that uses AAD for authentication This all works fine from my web browser. Within the API app, I want to access data from a project server installation using the Project Server Interface (PSI). Actually using FluentPS services, but that uses the PSI behind the scenes.

    If I hard code in the parameters I need (username, password, create a cookie) then I can use the FluentPS Services, and by extension the PSI.

    What I want to do is try to automate the process so that rather than hard coding specific user information, I use the credentials of the user that logged into the API. I should be able to just access the PSI using the credentials of the user, without re-specifying credentials. The account username and password used to authenticate against AAD is the same username and password I have hardcoded.

    I do not have anything additional setup for the project server instance in AAD, as far as permissions to authenticate. I don't think I need (nor do I want to) do this. Since I can manually create the authentication to the PSI within the API app and that works.

    Any suggestions on how to generate the authentication I need from within the API app?
