To create a category you should enabled Project Server Permission Mode. For more details check sharepoint permission mode vs project server permission mode

Once the Project Server Permission Mode is enabled you should see the Security section within PWA Settings. For more details check THE PWA SETTINGS OPTION IS MISSING

To create a category:

  • Click on category within security section and click add.

To configure your category to show only projects in case the current user is a resource in your project team

  • In Category , Project section check
    • Only include the selected projects:
    • The User is on that project's Project Team.

Avoid deleteing project permission

  • Open your group that you have set this category to it.
  • Then select your category at Selected Categories section
  • And allow and deny the required permissions as you need!
