UMT Project Essentials – Unable to elevate Context

UMT Project Essentials is a fantastic product developed by UMT that helps integrate Project Server with your financial system.

It is exceedingly well integrated with Project Server 2010. For the newer version of Project Server 2013 the version of the product is termed UMT 360.

Scenario: When browsing to the UMT web parts one is faced with the error message ‘Unable to elevate context’


After further digging, I found that one of the service accounts needed by UMT Project Essentials was removed from the Project Server Administrator group.

After adding this account all worked well.
