Summary: Project Server Administrators can manage security permissions for users by using the Manage Users page in PWA Server Settings.

When you make the initial connection to Microsoft Project Server 2010 through the Microsoft Project Web App (PWA) site, you must be logged on using the administrator account used to provision the PWA site. You can use this initial account to create other user accounts that can access Project Server. For example, this initial account could be used to create the user accounts that will serve as Project Server administrators, who will in turn create other user accounts and will do additional post-installation configuration.

You can use the Manage Users page that is available from the Server Settings page to add new individual users, modify existing users, deactivate user accounts, and reactivate inactive user accounts. You can also assign permissions to users by adding them to one of the built-in groups or by creating a custom group and assigning specific permissions to the custom group.
