Hi,

I am not able to keep track of who is doing changes in Microsoft Project server.Is there a way to keep track of things and configuration changes done in MSPS server.

Please suggest.

Project Server 2007 does not include built-in change auditing for anything other than timesheet data.

You can write event handlers to track many events, or you can use the IIS logs to find out what users are accessing which pages. Writing event handlers will require development experience and familiarity with a .NET language.


Does that answer your question?

Hi
I am not aware of the .Net language so is there any other option apart from configuring the event handler using .NET Language.

Thanks !!

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

The two options I wrote about above are the easiest two ways to monitor this. Since it is all web traffic, I am sure you could come up with other methods, but they will be more complicated and prone to failure. (For example, a proxy could record all activity, or a network sniffer could monitor activity.)

Project Server Event Handlers:
Event Handlers for Project Server can be written in Visual Basic or C#. While not too complicated, they are not a very good beginning programming exercise, since debugging them is much more difficult than usual applications. But these Event Handlers are the best way to accomplish this.

IIS Logs:
If you search through the logs for any accesses to
/pwa/_layouts/PWA/Admin/AddModifyUser.aspx
/pwa/_layouts/PWA/Admin/AddModifyGroup.aspx
/pwa/_layouts/PWA/Admin/AddModifyCategory.aspx

You should catch anyone that might be changing users. The URL willl even include the GUID of what is getting changed. The biggest problem will be that you will have trouble knowing what the change was, and whether they clicked Save or Cancel.

Then the answer is that there is not an easy enough way to perform this built into the product.

SatnamGambhir, please close more of your questions, and award points appropriately. Just because you don't like the answer does not mean that the question you asked wasn't answered.

This question is a good example. If your original question had stated that you wanted a method to do this _without_programming_ I would have been able to quickly tell you there is no such way. Instead, I spent time and gave you two good alternatives. Please close the question.
