Security.CheckUserObjectPermissions Method

Office 2007

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

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

[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("", RequestNamespace = "", 
	ResponseNamespace = "", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public bool[] CheckUserObjectPermissions(
	Guid objectUid,
	Guid objectTypeUid,
	Guid[] categoryPermissionUids


Type: System.Guid
GUID of an object.
Type: System.Guid
GUID of an object type.
Type: []
Array of one or more category permission GUIDs.

Return Value

Type: []
Array of Boolean values for each value in the categoryPermissionUids parameter.

To avoid specifying the objectTypeUid, you can use CheckUserProjectPermissions or CheckUserResourcePermissions instead of CheckUserObjectPermissions. To check a security permission for another resource requires using impersonation to log on as that resource.

For the objectTypeUid parameter, use the PSSecurityObjectType structure to get the GUID for the Project or Resource object type. For the categoryPermissionUid parameter, use the PSSecurityCategoryPermission structure to get the GUIDs of 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 a 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 objectType = PSLibrary.PSSecurityObjectType.Project;

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

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

bool permissionOk = true;

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