1) Project Owner will be set only if the corresponding Resource is a User.

2) PWA must be in Project Server (or Classic) Permission Mode.

3) G.A. Suite does not back up/restore users in Active Directory

G.A. Suite backs up/restores Project Server resources and users, in a case that an appropriate user account already exists in the Active Directory on the PWA (exact match of Display Name is required).

4) If server code is used, then Solution must be installed in the PWA.

5) Known issue: Portfolio Analysis Baseline Scenario with Constraint Type: Resource is not backed up/restored

6) All timesheet lines will be restored as personal tasks. 

7)  Restore/Copy of Master Projects with two and more levels of nested Sub-projects is not supported when performing the restore/copy in the default ways. However, there is a workaround to migrate Master Projects with two and more levels of nested Sub-projects described in this article

8) Project sites residing in an alternate/different Site Collection won't be linked to the corresponding Project automatically.

Known Limitations

G.A. Suite has certain limitations related to the backup/restore of Project Online data. 

The following content cannot be backed up/restored/copied:

  • Workflows developed in Visual Studio
  • All kinds of reports that use a database connection (reports that use OData will be backed up/restored)
  • Due to the Sharepoint security implementation, it is impossible to backup or restore limited access permission levels. Please refer to this article to learn more about Sharepoint permission levels.
