Security Model does not support Portfolio Analyzer

Discussion in 'Project Server' started by Hannetjie Edmunds, Feb 7, 2005.

  1. Hi there

    If you apply a security model to a group allowing certain users to view
    certain relevant projects on the Project Centre, Resource Centre and certain
    Portfolio Analyzing views, these users can view all projects on the
    Portfolio Analyzer, and not the selected projects as indicated on the
    applicable category... Do you experience the exact same scenario? I have a
    work around, although this is high maintenance, and human errors might
    occur, thus revealing sensitive information to some users.

    Regards

  2. Hannetjie --

    For better or worse, Microsoft's assumption is that the Portfolio Analyzer
    is used by people who need to see the entire portfolio of projects and
    resources. Therefore, the security permissions for the Project Center and
    Resource Center do not apply to the Portfolio Analyzer views. At best, you
    can manually control the projects and/or resources visible when you create a
    Portfolio Analyzer view, but users can override your selections manually.
    Hope this helps.
