    We have an application that builds projects via the psi web services. The application:

    1. Deletes the existing project if it exists

    2. Creates a new project from a template

    3. Adds tasks

    4. Publishes and checks in

    Everthing has been working perfectly in our dev and test systems but on our production system the process dies with the following error:

    ProjectServerError(s) LastError=ProjectDoesNotExist Instructions: Pass this into PSClientError constructor to access all error information (Fault Detail is equal to SvcProject.ServerExecutionFault).

    Our code is designed to handle the fact that a project might not exist when attempting to delete, so this error should never kill our process (and it doesn't in our other environments). So it must be something environmental. 

    Any ideas if there is a environmental setting that could be causing this error to kill our project generation process?

    This is what I see in the ULS logs, no errors:

    • PWA:http://*****/PWA, ServiceApp:Project Server Application, User:*****, PSI: Start checkout of project 'a550fb68-161a-4a24-b5a3-02b95f469f64' by resource 'c8434eff-da3a-477a-9333-b3e2b67fb690' to store 'WorkingStore'.
    • request channel state after Close(): Closed

    Edit. Project server was returning the guid for the archive database and this was causing the error when trying to delete.

    Could you tell me if it is possible? if yes, how?

    Thank you in advance.

    I have a client wanting to use the entire 4,000 char limit applied to ECFs Project fields.

    The field is an 'Initiative Comments History' field, config as an ECF of type Text, custom attributes = Multi lines of Text.

    The problem our users have noticed is that what is entered into this field doesn't always relate to the error message, i.e. 'Initiative Comments History field cannot be longer than 4000 characters. When using rich text formatting, this limit depends on the extent of the formatting and may be less than 4000 characters.'

    E.g. If a user pastes text from a word doc (ie. 3,344 chars inc spaces) into a PDP containing the field the system will accept the update when you hit the save button.  However if you add a couple of chars, the error message above is displayed.

    Anyone noticed this behaviour before?    Many thanks in advance.

  • 10/24/16--01:10: Capping hours worked
  • Hello,

    I have baseline a resource to work 4 hours per day, to a maximum of 20 hours for the week.

    I do not want the resource to be able to log any more than 4 hours per day.

    Is seems that resources can work as many hours per day as they want, as long as they are assigned to the task.

    Is this the case?

  • 10/24/16--10:08: Project Online Reports
  • I have my instance of Project Online and I can see some pre-loaded Excel based reports in the PWA Reports library - I can also see the Data Connections when I access Site Content. When I try to view the default reports without making any kind of change to them they fail to load or display any data - I thought there might be a problem with the Data Connection files but opening any of them in Excel displays plenty of relevant data.

    I thought I might need to put the correct URL into the OData connection in the Excel files but this looks to be fine too.

    I have experimented by creating new O Data Connections with a connection URL that ends with pwa/_api/projectdata/ and get a dialog box that permits me to select one or more tables of data from the Project Data Source.

    Am I missing something elementary in trying to get what is provided out of the box to display meaningful data?

    The following user is getting an “insufficient permissions” message trying to change a resource to inactive.

    But all permissions to manage resources are granted to him, see below.

    He is in the PROJECT MANAGERS group:

    There is only one category in this group: "My Projects"

    This category is configured to see ALL RESOURCES:

    Permissions by category:

    And global permissions:

    I'm trying to understand why this user can change resource information but can't change active field in resources.

    Could you help me?

       When I save and publish a project it shows in project center separately but when i add it to a master project and publish the master project it gets removed from the main view unless you open master project. Is this behavior logical because my client wants it to be shown on the project center and however you are able to open the master project and sub project individually in Professional.

    I get the "There is no site configured for this project" after changing EPT site template. With the normal site template it works fine.

    The template i am using was migrated from another site collection.

  • 10/19/16--08:07: Update a task using CSOM
  • Hi everyone,

    I want to modify a specified task using CSOM into C#.

    So i developed a method that can do the work but no modifications are made after calling this method.

    This is the code that i am using:

    using (csom.ProjectContext cc = new csom.ProjectContext(pwaPath))
                    c => c.Where(p => p.Id == guidIdProject).IncludeWithDefaultProperties(
                        pr => pr.StartDate, pr => pr.Id, pr => pr.ProjectResources, pr => pr.Assignments, pr => pr.FinishDate, pr => pr.Owner.LoginName, pr => pr.Tasks, pr => pr.ProjectSiteUrl, pr => pr.PercentComplete, pr => pr.ProjectResources, pr => pr.CustomFields, pr => pr.EnterpriseProjectType
                    foreach (csom.PublishedProject pubProj in cc.Projects)
                        csom.DraftProject projCheckedOut = pubProj.CheckOut();
                        var tasks = projCheckedOut.Tasks;
                        var draftProject = pubProj.CheckOut();
                        cc.Load(draftProject.Tasks, c => c.Where(field => field.Id == guidIdTask));
                        foreach (var task in draftProject.Tasks)
                            task.Start = Convert.ToDateTime(txtDateStart.Text);
                            task.Finish = Convert.ToDateTime(txtDateFinish.Text);
                        csom.QueueJob qJob = cc.Projects.Update();
                        csom.JobState jobState = cc.WaitForQueue(qJob, 200);

    Do you have a solution?

    Thank you,

  • 04/19/16--07:52: Synchronizing data to server
  • I have searched several different forums and have found this issue recurring over several years. I am encountering the issue as well.


    Project checked out in Microsoft Project Professional (replicate issue in both version 2013 and 2016) and made updates.  When clicking the Publish option (either through quick access bar or through File > Publish) the status bar hangs with "Synchronizing data to server...".

    The system never returns a successful publish.  The system never returns a successful save.  It just hangs with "Synchronizing data to server..."  Cache has been cleared and the issue still occurs.

    When I close out of MSP it asks if I want to check the project back in.  After check in I check the project out again and find the updates that were applied are in fact on the project BUT the successful publish status bar is not returned.

    I have a user base that want crisp and clear instructions.  Waiting for File was Published Successfully in the status bar is clear instructions.  If we are not receiving the published successfully status bar then end users are questioning if their updates are published appropriately and questioning the effectiveness of the application itself.

    Has anyone else encountered this issue and found resolution?  Should I enter a Service Ticket for research?

    I have 3 subprojects under a master project.  When in Project Center I click Show/Hide Subprojects, but it does not seem to do anything. 

    The 3 projects are all still listed, but they do not display in a way that indicates there are 3 projects under the main one.
