Upgrade Microsoft Project Server 2010 to Microsoft Project Server 2013
Updated: July 15, 2016
You can upgrade to Microsoft Project Server 2013 from a Project Server 2010 deployment that integrates with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013 (TFS) by following the instructions provided in this topic.
You cannot upgrade directly from Project Server 2007 to Project Server 2013. Instead, you first upgrade the app-tier and web-tier servers to Project Server 2010, then upgrade the required databases to Project Server 2013. For information about how to upgrade from Project Server 2007 to Project Server 2010, see the following resources on Microsoft TechNet:

Synchronize Project Server and Active Directory security groups
If you have moved from Windows authentication to Claims Based Authentication, synchronize the Active Directory security groups with Project Server.
For instructions, see Manage security group synchronization with Active Directory in Project Server 2013.
Set or verify database permissions
Add the service account of the web application pool for Project Server, and grant the following required permissions: Alter any Schema, Create Table, Delete, Execute, Insert, Select, and Update.
Add required accounts to security groups
Add user and service accounts to the required security groups.
For more information, see Assign permissions to support TFS-Project Server integration.
Register the new PWA
