  • Hi Ibr,

    If you are supporting Project Server for a large organisation, user access management might become a nightmare. Putting in place AD sync allows automatizing user creation process. The process can even be put in place in order to sync security groups or resources metadata from AD to Project Server.

    Note that if a resource is removed from the AD, it will be deactivate from Project Server, keeping the resource history.

    Finally if you are managing a small organisation, maybe sync AD might to be useful since it can easily be done manually

    Please find below a useful technet article:


    Hope this helps.
