Disable a Project Web App permission in Project Server 2010
Applies to: Project Server 2010
Topic Last Modified: 2012-01-19
Summary: Project Server global and category permissions can be disabled, but this action should be examined carefully before it is done.
In Microsoft Project Server 2010, thoroughly consider the effects on your organization of disabling permissions before making such a change. If the removal of the permission does not need to be applied to all users, then verify whether another approach could be used. For example, could you create a custom group and deny the permission you want to restrict instead of disabling the permission throughout the organization?
For information about how permissions work, see Permissions.
Before you perform this procedure, confirm that:
You have read Manage Project Web App permissions in Project Server 2010.
You have access to Project Server 2010 through the Microsoft Project Web App site.
The Manage users and groups global permission in Project Server 2010 is required to complete this procedure.
