In Project Server 2019, 2016 as well as 2013, the user has two different types of permissions:

  1. Global Permissions : Allow users to use and access sites and features.
  2. Category Permissions : Allow users to do tasks with projects, resources, and views.

Global Permission in Project Server / Project Online

  • Project Server Global Permission allows or denies users to access the PWA instance and use its features.
  • it’s only available in Project Server Permission Mode.

Global Permission in Project Server 2019 / Project Online

Don’t set the global permission to a user directly. instead, you should set it to a group.

Category Permission in Project Server 2019 / Project Online

Project Server Category Permission provides the associated group a set of permissions to do certain tasks with project, resources.
