I got this error

sorry, you don't have license for project web app

when I have tried to open PWA in Project Server ?!!


This is because of license issue,either you have to assign existing license or need to buy new license then assign, please go through the link here this issue and root cause is mentioned.


for On-Prem This problem might occur if the User Licence Enforcement capability has already enabled ,but the user license mapping hasn’t enabled for the current user.thus the current user will be blocked with this error message “Sorry, you don’t have a licence to use Project Web App”
