ResourcePlan.ReadResourcePlan method

Reads resource plan data for the specified project by using an optional filter or date range. Optionally, checks out the resource plan for modification.

Namespace:  WebSvcResourcePlan
Assembly:  ProjectServerServices (in ProjectServerServices.dll)

[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/ResourcePlan/ReadResourcePlan", RequestNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/ResourcePlan/", 
	ResponseNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/ResourcePlan/", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public ResourcePlanDataSet ReadResourcePlan(
	string filter,
	Guid projectUid,
	DateTime startDate,
	DateTime endDate,
	short timeScale,
	bool timephasedFTE,
	bool autoCheckOut
)

Parameters

filter
Type: System.String

Contains the XML filter to limit the data that is returned.

projectUid
Type: System.Guid

Contains the project GUID.

startDate
Type: System.DateTime

Contains the start date.

endDate
Type: System.DateTime

Contains the end date.

timeScale
Type: System.Int16

Specifies the time scale with TimeScaleClass.TimeScale enumeration.

timephasedFTE
Type: System.Boolean

If true, converts the time values to a full-time equivalent resource.

autoCheckOut
Type: System.Boolean

If true, checks out the resource plan for editing.

Return value

Type: WebSvcResourcePlan.ResourcePlanDataSet
The ResourcePlanDataSet.PlanResourcesDataTable includes the data that is specified by the filter or date parameters.

The primary DataTable in a ResoucePlanDataSet is the PlanResourcesDataTable.

NoteNote

The filter parameter works with the Criteria operators to filter rows only in the primary PlanResourcesDataTable. For example, you cannot use filter with the ReadResourcePlan method to filter rows in the PlanAssignmentCustomFieldsDataTable. If you try to filter rows in a secondary DataTable, the PSI returns a FilterInvalid exception.

However, you can use the Fields.Add method to filter columns in the primary CalendarsDataTable and in any secondary DataTable.

The example uses the SvcResourcePlan namespace in the ProjectServerServices.dll proxy assembly. The ConfigClientEndpoints method uses an app.config file to set the WCF binding, behavior, and endpoint for the resourcePlanClient object, the resourceClient object, and the projectClient object. For information about creating and using a PSI proxy assembly and an app.config file, see Prerequisites for WCF-based code samples in Project 2013.

NoteNote

The following example demonstrates the use of the ReadResourcePlan method; it is not a full solution.

For sample code about how to create a resource plan, see QueueCreateResourcePlan.To use the ReadResourcePlan sample, create a project, build the project team from the enterprise resources, and then create and publish a resource plan by using Project Web App.

After the resource plan is created and the project is published, compile and run the sample. For example, the following command reads the resource plan for a project named My Swell Project, and then writes the ResourcePlanDataSet contents to the C:\Project\Samples\Output\ReadResourcePlanDS.xml file.

ReadResourcePlan -project "My Swell Project"

For a project that extends over two weeks, using the ReadResourcePlan method with the timescale in weeks shows two intervals named Interval0 and Interval1 in the resource plan. In this example, the resource plan intervals contain 0 hours of time. Following is an example of output in the ReadResourcePlanDS.xml file.
