If you no longer need a custom security group in Microsoft Office Project Server 2007, you can delete it. Before you delete a group, ensure that no other users or groups are dependent on it for required permissions.

Before you perform this procedure, confirm that:

  • You have read Manage users in Project Server 2007.

  • You have access to Office Project Server 2007 through Project Web Access.


    The Manage users and groups global permission in Office Project Server 2007 is required to complete this procedure.

To delete a security group

Perform the following procedure to delete a group in Office Project Server 2007.


Default Project Server groups cannot be deleted.

Delete a custom group

  1. On the Project Web Access home page, in the Quick Launch, click Server Settings.

  2. On the Server Settings page, in the Security section, click Manage Groups.

  3. On the Manage Groups page, in the Group Name list, find the custom group you want to delete. Click the check box next to the group name you want to delete. Note that you can select multiple groups.

  4. Click Delete Group.

  5. A message box appears, asking for confirmation and noting that the group will be permanently removed. Click OK to deactivate the user account or user accounts.


    Custom security groups are permanently deleted, unlike deactivated user accounts (which can be reactivated). If you delete a custom security group and then find that you want to have it again, you must recreate it.
