Missing Delegation Feature in Project Server

In this article, I will discuss and solve the issue of

Missing Delegation Feature in PWA Settings in Project Server 2016 / 2013.


Scenario

In PWA Settings, you can’t find the Delegation Options below Personal  Settings as shown below:

Cause

This issue occurs because of the current PWA Instance Permission Mode is SharePoint Permission Mode, and the Manage Delegates option is only available in the Project Permission Mode.

  Note
In SharePoint Permission Mode,

  • You cannot edit the default permissions assigned to any of these SharePoint groups.
  • You cannot create additional custom groups.
  • You cannot create additional custom categories.
  • There is no (Resource Breakdown Structure) RBS filtering.
  • The user delegation feature is not available.
  • The Impersonation is not available.

Note: If the Project Permission Mode is already activated and you still can’t find Manage Delegates option, so in this case, it’s a permission issue that I have solved at Project Server 2016: Missing ‘Manage Delegates’ Option In PWA Setting


Solution

To show the Manage Delegates options in PWA settings, you should activate the Project Permission Mode via Powershell by running Set-SPProjectPermissionMode cmdlet.

  Important
Before you decide to switch from one Permission Mode to another, you should be aware of all the current activated Permission Mode configurations settings will be deleted and can’t be restored.

Steps
  • Open SharePoint Management Shell as Administrator.
  • Switch to the Project Permission Mode by running the Set-SPProjectPermissionMode cmdlet as the following:
SharePoint 2013
Set-SPPRojectPermissionMode -Url 'PWA URL' -AdministratorAccount 'domain\adminaccount' -Mode ProjectServer

Switch to the new Permission Mode by running the Set-SPProjectPermissionMode cmdlet

SharePoint 2016
Set-SPPRojectPermissionMode -Url 'PWA URL'-Mode ProjectServer
  • Go back to the PWA Setting, The Delegation Options should be now shown.
