View, Edit, Delete options are missing within Manage Project Web Apps in Project Server

When I tried to manage a PWA Instance within the Central administration in Project Server 2013 by navigating to

  • Central Administration > Application Management > Manage Service Applications.

Application Management

  • Click on PWA Application Service.
  • Select PWA Instance then clicks on its right arrow to manage it but unfortunately, I couldn’t find View/Edit/Delete option as shown below.

Manage Project Web Apps - Project Server - DevoWorx

Cause

This problem might occur because of one of the following reasons

  1. You don’t have  elevated permissions to manage PWA instance via the current user.
  2. In some cases,you might need to add the central administration site to intranet zone.
  3. The farm requires updating to at least July CU 2015.

Solution:

Regarding > You don’t have  elevated permissions to manage PWA instance with the current user.

In order to manage the PWA Instance, you should be

  • Farm account that has been provided to configure SharePoint via SharePoint Configuration wizard during installing SharePoint.
  • A domain user that is configured as an application pool identity for Project Server Services.
  • A domain user that is configured as a service account to run Project Server Services.

Note : If the current user is a member of Local Administrator Group and Farm Administrator Group, you will still unable to manage PWA Instance because it is not matched with the above mentioned user types.

In this case,

  • Try to open Central Administration as farm account.

Run Central Administration as different user - SharePoint - Devoworx

  • Go to Application Management > Manage Service Applications.

Application Management

  • Click on PWA Application Service.
  • Select PWA Instance then clicks on its right arrow to manage it where the View/Edit option should be now shown.

If the current user is a farm account and you still missing the manage options, so that you should run Central Administration as Administrator.

Run Central Administration as Administrator - SharePoint - Devoworx

Regarding >  In some cases,you might need to add the Central Administration site URL to Intranet Zone.

If the current user is farm account and you still get the same issue, so you should add the Central Administration URL to Intranet Zone in Internet Explorer.

Open Central Adminnistration > from Tools menu > Intenret Options > Security > Local Intranet > Sites > Add > Close.

If the previous solutions didn’t solve the issue, so you will need to install the CU July 2015 from here.

Note: To check the latest Cumulative update that has already applied on your farm check Find the latest Cumulative Update / Farm Patch Level that has been installed in a SharePoint Farm.

Note: After Installing the CU you still need to run the SharePoint Configuration wizard that will update the farm build number to 15.0.4737.1001
