Map User/Group to an Organization RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have recently deployed project server 2010 to our environment where we are currently in design phase and want to achive Organization view on top.

    We want to use common Project 2010 across various entities, so we need to Map a user/group to a Individual entity so that tomorrow if we want to see how many projects/task etc are map to different entities we should be able to achive this in a single click from reports.

    Every entity will have its own Projects which should not be view or accessible to a user from different entity.

    Please Suggest...

  • There're a couple of ways to accomplish this, but the first thing I would look at is using the RBS structure to govern how security is propogated throughout the organization.  Identify how many branches you need for the RBS, and configure Category security appropriately.

    That should get you most of the way there.

    Alternately, you could use either a custom Project field or the Department field.  Then create specific Project Center views, each view filtered on a different department.  In this case, you would have to create a Security Category for each department, and make sure it only possesses the correct views, and that the right users are mapped to those Categories via Security Groups.

    My recommendation would be the first option as it will make administration a lot simpler.  Take a look at the Project Server RBS functionality and see if it meets your needs.
