Resource.DeleteResources Method

Deletes one or more enterprise resources or users.

Namespace:  [Resource Web service]
Service reference: http://ServerName:32843/[Project Service Application GUID]/PSI/Resource.svc
Web service reference: http://ServerName/ProjectServerName/_vti_bin/PSI/Resource.asmx?wsdl

[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Resource/DeleteResources", RequestNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Resource/", 
	ResponseNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Resource/", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public void DeleteResources(
	Guid[] arrayRes,
	string deletionComment
)

Parameters

arrayRes
Type: []
Guids of the resources to delete.
deletionComment
Type: System.String
A brief note describing the deletion. This comment is sent to any affected project manager when a resource in their project changes from an enterprise resource to a local resource.

The resource must be checked out before it can be deleted.

A resource may not be deleted if the resource:

  • Has anything checked out

  • Is the current user

  • Owns a project

  • Is a timesheet manager

  • Owns an assignment

  • Is the default assignment owner

  • Is used in a resource plan

Project Server Permissions

Permission

Description

CleanupProjectServerDatabase

Allows a user to delete information from the database. Global permission.

The following example creates several resources, retrieving them if they already exist, reports them, and then deletes them.
