Understanding the Project Server Database

The Project Server database is used to store data that helps enable collaboration between project managers and team members, manage Project Web Access administrative settings, manage users and set their security privileges for accessing Project Web Access and Project Server, and store the data used to create project and resource view tables.

You can access information stored in the Project Server database by connecting Project Professional to Project Server or by logging on to Project Web Access.

For more information, see Chapter 22, "Managing with Project Professional and Project Server."

After Project Server is installed and running, its administration is done mainly through the Admin tab in Project Web Access. The project server administrator can create new users and groups of users, set permissions for users, create views, and manage the default settings for all users of Project Web Access.

If you want to know more about the individual tables and fields in this database, see pjsvrdb.htm on the Companion CD.
