Namespace:  [Security Web service]
Service reference: http://ServerName:32843/[Project Service Application GUID]/PSI/Security.svc
Web service reference: http://ServerName/ProjectServerName/_vti_bin/PSI/Security.asmx?wsdl

	ResponseNamespace = "", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public bool[] CheckUserResourcePermissions(
	Guid resourceUid,
	Guid[] categoryPermissionUids


Type: System.Guid
GUID of a resource.
Type: System.Guid[]
Array of one or more category permission GUIDs.

Return Value

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

CheckUserResourcePermissions wraps a call to CheckUserObjectPermissions. To check for a single category permission for a resource, you can use CheckUserResourcePermission. 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




Allows a user to log on Project Server. Global permission.

The following example checks if the current user has three different category permissions for an existing resource. 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 resource.
Guid resourceUid = new Guid("a1fcbf91-e91d-44e2-a4a7-3b4b698cb984");

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

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.
