    Copy PWA Configuration

    Initiate the replication of PWA Configuration to make sure all settings for Project creation are in place. It is required to launch this process manually for the first time only. Afterward, we will make sure the PWA Configuration is replicated in the archive instance by schedule.

    1. On G.A. Suite Homepage click on the source environment title, navigate to the Change Management section and choose the Copy option:

    2. On the 'Copy' page click on the Copy now button:

    3. Copy Now window will be opened. Review and edit the required information here by clicking on the pencil-like button next to each section.

    • Source location - check that the source PWA URL is correct. 
    • Notification Email - specify the email, where the notification will be sent on completion.
    • Source credentials - Provide specific credentials, if needed, and validate them. Multi-factor Authentication for Office 365 users is also available. For more details refer to this article. Please note: By default G.A. Suite uses the credentials which were provided when adding PWA to G.A. Suite. These credentials are stored and may be found on the Credentials page. If for some reason you would like G.A. Suite to use a different set of credentials, use this option.
    • Target location - the PWA configuration will be copied to the selected PWA. Please note: The required PWA should be added to your G.A. Suite tenant and licensed. 
    • Target credentials - provide target specific credentials if you need to use different credentials from the ones provided on the Credentials page. 
    • PWA Configuration - click on the pencil-like button to select the configuration you need to upload to the target PWA now. 
    • 'Preserve Resource UID' - With this option turned OFF, Resource UIDs will not be preserved, Resources will be created with new UIDs.

    Select the default set of configuration for copying, select Default option and click Save button. 

    Please note: Security Settings can be migrated successfully only if the Permission Mode is the same in the source and destination systems. When a new Project Online PWA is provisioned, Security Mode is set to SharePoint by default. In case, the source PWA is using Project Server Permission Mode, and the target PWA SharePoint one, Security settings will not be copied.

    Click the Copy now button to launch the copying process. 

    Copy Summary window will be opened where you can review the information for the launched operation. You can Cancel and Pause the operation if required. 

    Click Close to return to the Copy page. 

    Await until the copy process is finished.

    The next step is to update Project Site creation settings in Enterprise Project Types in the archive PWA (‘Allow users to choose’).

    Additionally, the ‘Sync SharePoint Tasks Lists” setting should be enabled. Then the “Tasks” SharePoint Lists in Project Sites will be populated with tasks from Project Schedule.
