Security.CheckUserProjectPermissions Method

Checks whether the current user has one or more of the specified security category permissions for a specified project.

Namespace:  WebSvcSecurity
Assembly:  ProjectServerWebServices (in ProjectServerWebServices.dll)


<SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("", RequestNamespace := "",  _
    ResponseNamespace := "",  _
    Use := SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle := SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)> _
Public Function CheckUserProjectPermissions ( _
    projectUid As Guid, _
    categoryPermissionUids As Guid() _
) As Boolean()
Dim instance As Security
Dim projectUid As Guid
Dim categoryPermissionUids As Guid()
Dim returnValue As Boolean()

returnValue = instance.CheckUserProjectPermissions(projectUid, _
[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("", RequestNamespace = "", 
    ResponseNamespace = "", 
    Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public bool[] CheckUserProjectPermissions(
    Guid projectUid,
    Guid[] categoryPermissionUids


  • categoryPermissionUids
    Type: []
    Array of one or more category permission GUIDs.

Return Value

Type: []
Array of Boolean values that correspond to security category permissions of the current user for the project.


CheckUserProjectPermissions wraps a call to CheckUserObjectPermissions. To check a single category permission for a project, you can use CheckUserProjectPermissions. To check a category permission for another user on a project requires using impersonation to log on as that user.

For the categoryPermissionUids parameter, use the PSSecurityCategoryPermission structure to get the GUIDs for the default category permissions, or use ReadCategoryPermissions to get the GUIDs for custom category permissions.

Project Server Permissions




Log on Project Server. Global permission.


The following example checks if the current user has three different category permissions for an existing project. For additional information and a complete sample application, see Using Security Methods in the PSI.

using System;
using System.Net;
using PSLibrary = Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library;
. . .
CookieContainer cookiecontainer = new CookieContainer();
SecurityWebSvc.Security security = new SecurityWebSvc.Security();
security.Url = "http://ServerName/ProjectServerName/_vti_bin/psi/security.asmx";
security.CookieContainer = cookiecontainer;
security.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

// Set the GUID for an existing project.
Guid projectUid = new Guid("BC323C21-B7E4-4631-AF99-C44E5C52BA4E");

Guid[] permissionChecks = { 
   PSLibrary.PSSecurityCategoryPermission.ViewProjectWorkspace };

bool[] permissionResults = new bool[permissionChecks.Length];
permissionResults = security.CheckUserProjectPermissions(projectUid, permissionChecks);

bool permissionOk = true;

for (int i = 0; i < permissionResults.Length; i++)
   permissionOk = permissionOk && permissionResults[i];
if (permissionOk)
   // Continue the application.
