Project Manager change in new UX - access right issue

    Dear Community Members,

     

    have you ever tried to change the Project Manager in a project using a New UX? It does not transfer all the necessary rights to the new manager, does it? Isn't it a bug?

     

    When a new project is created, the creator becomes the manager automatically. At the same time he/she get some rights (of a Resource type):

     

    Project - Financial Plan - Submit for Approval

    Project - Edit All - Project Status

    Project - Budget Plan - Edit

    Project - Benefit Plan - Edit

    Project - Edit Management

    Project - Manager (Auto)

    Project - Cost Plan - Edit

    Project - Risk, Issue, Change Request - Create/Edit

    Project - Edit

    Project - Create - Project Status

     

    Later, when we change the Manager (through DETAILS page), only the Project - Manager (Auto) gets re-assigned to the new manager. All other rights stay with the old manager.

    Can you confirm that? Isn't it a bug?

     

    Regards,

    Pawel

    I believe that the only right a named project manager gets is the "Project - Manager (Auto)" right - not sure how (in your system) you would get all the other rights (via a process perhaps?).

    Thanks David,

     

    that was my first thought as well, but I checked the Initiated processes list and it's empty. So I came to a [false?] conclusion, that it's the New UX that is somehow giving those extra rights to the PM.

    So what else can it be? Databse trigger maybe?

    Well if it was a DB trigger you would expect that to be triggered both in legacy UI and new UI - what happens in the legacy-UI when you change project managers?

     

    I think you need to understand how those rights are being granted in your system before assuming its a problem with the new UI (it might be the new UI, or a consequence of the new UI that you have not considered - obviously I am GUESSING here)

    David,

    you're right! I've put the blame on the New UX prematurely. The same set of rights is granted even if the project is created in the classic UX.

    Now, I need to find out what is responsible for giving those rights...

     

    Thanks for helping, Dave!

    And more interestingly, do the rights get transferred when you change the 'project manager' in the classic-UX?
