Hi Dana,

Project Server 2013 offers two security modes for controlling the kind of access that users have to sites and projects.

1. Project Server Permission Mode

2. SharePoint Permission Mode


1. Plan user access in Project Server 2013:

2. SharePoint Permissions Mode default permissions for Project Server 2013 SharePoint groups:

By default when you provision a new PWA site in Project Server 2013 its in SharePoint Permission Mode where you don't see the Manage Securities in PWA Settings Page as in Project Server 2010.

If you like to Manage the Security in your PWA you can change the permission mode by running the command Set-SPProjectPermissionMode in SharePoint Management Shell

Refer:- Set-SPProjectPermissionMode:

Hi Dana

Abbreviating it for you,

Set-SPPRojectPermissionMode Url <PWA URL> -AdministratorAccount DomainName\AdminUserAccount -Mode ProjectServer

Replace <PWA URL> with your pwa site url might be     http://companyps/pwa
