Change Project Server 2013(EPM) Security Mode

In Project Server 2013 (EPM 2013) there are two security modes:

  • SharePoint Mode (Default)
  • Project Server Mode

In Project Server Mode, there are more customization security groups and other functionality that is distinct from SharePoint groups.

to switch between those modes, user SharePoint 2013 PowerShell console and run the below commands:

  • SharePoint Mode
Set-SPPRojectPermissionMode -Url http://WebApplication/pwa -AdministratorAccount Domain\serviceAccountName -Mode SharePoint
  • Project Server Mode
Set-SPPRojectPermissionMode -Url http://WebApplication/pwa -AdministratorAccount Domain\serviceAccountName -Mode ProjectServer

after using Project server mode, the security will look like below image:
