Restricting System Admin from Accessing Project Server PWA Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    Is it possible to restrict System Admin to access PWA site one he/she creates Web App Site (Instance) from Central Admin ? I tried looking for some event for Instance creation but didn't find any. Basically my client's requirement is that once the admin creates the instance for their Organization entities, he/she should not be allowed to access those instance site. Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Kashif

    You can limit the access for the account using the permission model, but I would always recommend leaving the Adminsitartor account with full access in case you change permissions for the other "Admin user/s" and you somehow prevent access, you will always then have the Administrator account to fall back on and give the other users access if needed.

    Thanks

  • Hi Kashif,

    If I have understood you correctly, why don't you create an account (non user account) to be used as the Administrator account?

    Thanks

  • Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the reply. Is it possible to have an account other than system account that can create pwa instance but would not have access to it's site, that is for e.g "http://servername/pwa1 and so on? I just need a solution to implement this scenario.

    Thanks,
