    I'm using CSOM to work with Project Server. (Microsoft.ProjectServer.Client).

    I was trying to get some properties of Resources and I create a EnterpriseResource but I don't know how can I set MaximumCapacity. I see that PublishedProjectResource contains this property, but what is the way to get this object?.

    I have the following issue.  There are 5 users (out of 1000) that have an issue when they try to publish a brand new plan.  Basically Project Professional 2013 goes offline and fails to publish the project.

    The users basically do this.

    1.- Open Project Pro 2013

    2.- Connect to the PWA instance

    3.- create a new project

    4.- Save the project

    5.- And then TRY to publish the project:

    This is when the following error happens.  After a minute or so, 

     

    The error displayed is: “Could not complete the operation because project is offline”

     

    After clicking ok on the error window, it shows the “Publish Project” box and the Web Application Drop Down Box is empty.  Usually there is the URL to the team sites URL  e.g. site.com/sites/project

     

    After this, a PWA admin has to publish the plan (this is the workaround for these affected users).

    What I have done trying to fix it.

    • Tried re-installing Project Pro
    • I used an account that is able to publish and logged on to the affected user PC via RunAs and was able to publish a new plan. So there is no PC misconfiguration or firewall issue that I can think of.
    • Checked permissions and ensure they had the correct role assignment.
    • Escalated user permissions to Admin on Project Server PWA and the Related SharePoint Team Sites Site.  No Luck.
    • We captured logs (fiddler, netmon, ULS, ProcMon) and there are no indications of any errors there.

    Has anybody experience something like this?  What could be wrong?

    In PWA 2010, I find that when I use Team Builder to add resources to the schedule in PWA, each resource added has a pulldown list for Booking Type. I can set the booking types on all of the added resources in one place.

    But when using the resource plan Team Builder, there is no such pulldown. I have to add the resources, then select Edit Custom Field for each one to change the Booking Type. What am I missing?

    Dear all,

    I'm using Internet Explorer 9.0.7 kb 2699988.

    I receive this message when browse to Project Center, Approval Center, Server Setting...

    "This Web Part requires at least Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0. For more information, contact your Project Server Administrator."

    I tried to remove and install Internet Explorer 9 again, and still this error.

    What should I do now?

    Thanks very much.

    Hello together,

    we're running Project Server 2013, current patch level. We saved a project template. Several tasks are set to "Publish = No". Week starts on Monday.

    Now we create an enterprise project type using that project template, and create a project via PWA Project Centre.

    Opening that server-created project in Project Professional, we see that all tasks have Published = Yes and the week starts on Sunday.

    Is this bug known? Is there a known fix, hack or workaround?

    Thank you and kind regards,
    Adrian

  • 09/02/16--02:11: Replacing Resources
  • In our company ,recently all users have been migrated to Windows 10 and have new user IDs.

    For this I in my project I want to substitute the old Resource name with the new Resource name.

    I opened the Build Team from Enterprise Dialoge Box and replaced a resource.

    The following thing occured:

    All work that was already completed stayed with the old resource. All remaining work was assigned to the new Resource.

    For Tasks for which the old Resource was assigned to at 30%  the new Resource is now allocated at 100% for the remaining work.

    Questions:

    1. How can I substitute a Resource 1:1 (new user ID for old user ID) and also maintain the actual work?

    2. How can be assured that the new Resource maintains the same assignment units for the remaining work?

    Thank you for your answer!

    Regards,

    Heiner

    Hello All ,

    Did anyone face a similar issue like this :) , and do you think is a bug ?

    Issue Description

    When Project End user try to change start Date of a project and then saves the project , Project start date does not change and stays at it previous value,

    Note:- Project detail PDP contains a lot of ECFs

    Issue Investigation and Analysis

    During issue troubleshooting , I have found that when creating new project in the three Project server instances (QA, Training and PWA) , (with new Projects)

    1-    Start date is updated successfully if there is
    1.no info in all other ECFs
    2.if ECFs with lookup tables, numbers is updated First when all ECF are empty

    2-    Start date is not updated if ECF with text field is updated before ECFs with lookup tables or number,

    3-    If end user will need to fill ECFs , then he should fill ECF with numbers or lookup table first then save, then he can change start date afterwards

    4-    Updating ECFs at the same with start date will not be considered and one of them or both will not be saved
    1.Updating ECF with (lookup table) with start date at the same time, ECF update will be ignored , and start date will be updated
    2.Updating ECF (text) with start date at the same time, ECF update will be ignored , and start date will be updated
    3.Updating ECF (number) with start date at the same time, Both updates will be ignored
    4.Updating ECF (lookup table) with start date at the same time, ECF update will be ignored , and start date will be updated
    5.Updating ECF (lookup table) with start date at the same time, ECF update will be ignored , and start date will be updated

    Conclusion

    1-    Start date is updated successfully if there is no info in all other ECFs or if ECFs with lookup tables, numbers is updated.

    2-    Start date is not updated successfully if ECF with text field is updated before ECFs with lookup tables or number,

    3-    When updating Start Date with other ECF’s one of them or both will not be updated successfully

    4-    When updating start date with a number ECF, both updates will be ignored

    5-    When updating start date with any ECF other than number ECF , start date will always be saved successfully and other ECF update will be ignored

    6-    To overcome this Start date need to be updated alone in a save session

    7-    Project start date does not work with manual tasks , so project owner will face an issue where project start date will not get changed if there are manual tasks in the project schedule


    Repro Steps

    1-    The Repro Steps for this changing start date issue
    1.Create a project
    2.Update any ECF with text field
    3.Try to change start date,

    Result: it will not get changed


    Workarounds

    Workaround 1:-
    1.Remove your ECF updates
    2.Update first ECFs with lookup tables like (Revenue Country , Deal type, Bid Status)
    3.And then update other ECF

    Workaround 2 :

    Access the Enterprise project using MS Project 2013 and then change the start date from there , followed by Publish

    Workaround 3 :

    Put Start Date in a separate New PDP and remove it from Project Information PDP (tested and problem disappeared)

    Hello,

    I recently downloaded Visual Studio Community 2015. When I try to start a new project, by double clicking on a template, an error box pops up that reads "No framework version is selected, you must select one before creating a project." When I have selected a template and entered the name and solution name, the program will not allow me to click OK. I do not know what is going wrong, Have I missed a step in opening a project? Should I try deleting and re-downloading the program all together? Please help.

    -Robert

    I'm using TFS 2015.

    Consider I have this server source folder structure:  A/a, A/b, A/c, A/d, A/e, A/f, A/g

    If I want to create a workspace containing only A/a and A/b, I have two choices:
    1) Map A/a and A/b, each
    2) Map A and cloak A/c, A/d, A/e, A/f, A/g

    Obviously, method 1) is more convenient in this case.

    The problem comes with .tfignore.
    Assuming that A/a and A/b are mapped to C:\local\A\a and C:\local\A\b, resp.
    From the description of .tfignore, I would expect that C:\local\A was the right location to place it.
    Since its effect is recursive, all folders below C:\local\A\a and C:\local\A\b should be filtered.

    But this is not the case, because every mapped folder needs its own copy of .tfignore.
    So using method 1), both folders, A/a and A/b need a copy of .tfignore each.
    Using method 2), only folder A needs a .tfignore file.

    So am I doomed to always map a single root folder and cloak everything I don't need if I need a small workspace or can I specify the ignored file patterns in a different way?

    I also entered the file patterns as regexes into the Forbidden pattern policy.
    This does cause Policy Warnings "Filename $/.....tli matches forbidden regular expression: \.tli$" to be thrown at me if I attempt to add forbidden files to the repository but it does not hide the forbidden files from the "Detected: xxx add(s)" list.

    Which is my whole point. I want the "Pending Changes..." tab to become completely blind to *.tli files and neither offer nor allow me to add them to the repository.

    Hi,

    i am using the Project Server Reporting Database for gathering some information on projects and tasks. I couldnt find any information about the Task Creator and maybe even the Modifier (Accountname or Displayname of the user).

    Isn't this possible? I mean isnt this information stored within the reporting database?

    best regards

    Hello,

    When open a project through Project Professional 2010,if you click on 'Retrieve list of all projects from Project Server',MS has given the feature of 'Group By' so that visibility of available projects can be grouped as per our need.Here comes my question - Can we add 'EnterpriseProjectTypeName' as one of the option to apply the 'Group By'?

    FYI,I noticed the available fields are all custom fields which are of lookup value type.Can we add text value type custom fields into this list?

    I believe using some VB code we can achieve this probably but not sure.Any pointers in this direction would be really helpful.

    Thanks.


    Thanks,

    example:

    I have got the project with few tasks, subtasks and how can i get all the informations like when the task begins, finish, ressources, subtasks, previous tasks and the other informations about the project.

    Which type of API should i use to perform this?

    How to use the API and even to do tests?

    Can i create, modify and delete projects and tasks with this API ?

    Thank you for your help.

  • 09/06/16--06:42: Actual hours disappeared
  • Project Server 2013 (on prem), Apr 2016 CU,

    Actual hours entered via "my tasks", saved and per “Send Status” sent to the Status manager, Status Manager clicks “Approve”.

    After publishing the project (in MSP Pro), the actual hours entered before disappeared.

    This behavior is not reproducable and appears sporadic on many projects at one customer.

    Customer was migrated from 2010 to 2013. The issue occured first time with CU Jan 2016. Before no issue was recorded.

    Error Message in Status History says “There was an internal error applying the update.”

    Any ideas or similar cases known?

    Thanks in advance
