Project.CreateWssListSyncedProject Method

Creates a project with the specified name of the SharePoint task list, and then populates the project with data that is mapped from the task list.

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

[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Project/CreateWssListSyncedProject", RequestNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Project/", 
	ResponseNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Project/", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public Guid CreateWssListSyncedProject(
	SyncDataSet syncDataSet,
	string projectName
)

Parameters

syncDataSet
Type: [Project Web service].SyncDataSet
The synchronization mapping data.
projectName
Type: System.String
The name of the SharePoint task list, which becomes the synchronized project name.

Return Value

Type: System.Guid
The GUID of the project that is created.

The new method in Project Server 2010. To use the CreateWssListSyncedProject method, you must programmatically create a SyncDataSet; you cannot use the ReadProjectSyncSettings method until after a project is synchronized.

Project Server Permissions

Permission

Description

Non-standard

You must have either the ManageWorkflow global permission or the ChangeWorkflow global permission. If you have the ChangeWorkflow permission, you must also have both the OpenProject category permission and the SaveProject category permission.

The example uses the SvcProject namespace in the ProjectServerServices.dll proxy assembly. The ConfigClientEndpoints method and the SetClientEndPoints method use an app.config file for setting the WCF binding, behavior, and endpoint. For information about creating a PSI proxy assembly and an app.config file, see Prerequisites for WCF-Based Code Samples.

NoteNote

The following example is designed to demonstrate the use of the CreateWssListSyncedProject, UpdateProjectSyncSettings, and SyncProjectWithWss methods; it is not a full solution. The GUIDs are hardcoded for the necessary fields. To use the example, first create a SharePoint task list. In the code, change the LIST_TITLE, the SHAREPOINT_LIST_SITE, and other URL values where applicable, to match those in your test installation of Project Server 2010.

The Lists web service provides methods for working with SharePoint lists and list items. To access this web service, set a reference to http://site/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx.

The Lists.GetListCollection web method returns an XML document that includes the names and GUIDs of all lists in the SharePoint site. The sample uses the XElement.Parse method to change the XML document to an XElement object named root. The GetListGuid method then does a LINQ to XML query on the root object and returns the GUID of the list that corresponds to the list title.

The CreateSyncDataSet method creates a SyncDataSet object named syncDS. The CreateWssListSyncedProject method uses the syncDS object to create a synchronized project. Following is the complete sample code:
