Parent element
Child elements

Contains the properties that define the reporting data for a project in the ProjectData service.

The following REST query uses the Projects entity set and the ProjectId key to get the start and finish dates for a specified project. The query is all on one line.

http://<pwa_url>/_api/ProjectData/Projects
    ?$select=ProjectStartDate,ProjectFinishDate
    &$filter=ProjectId eq guid'7e910f5b-95e2-e111-8d29-00155d35d32e'

The following REST query uses the Tasks entity set and the ProjectId key to get the tasks in a specified project. The query is all on one line.

http://<pwa_url>/_api/ProjectData/Tasks
    ?$filter=ProjectId eq guid'7e910f5b-95e2-e111-8d29-00155d35d32e'

The following statement uses LINQ query syntax to retrieve Project entity data from the OData interface of the Project Server reporting tables. To use the statement in an application, set a service reference to the ProjectDataService, and initialize the ReportingData context. The Projects entity set can then be accessed as context.Projects. For more information, see Querying OData feeds for Project 2013 reporting data.

var query =
    from p in Projects
    where p.ProjectStartDate > new DateTime(2012, 1, 1)
    orderby p.ProjectName
    select new
    {
        Project = p.ProjectName,
        StartDate = p.ProjectStartDate,
        FinishDate = p.ProjectFinishDate,
        ProjectCost = p.ProjectCost
    };

The preceding statement can be written by using Lambda expression syntax, as follows:

var query = Projects
    .Where(p => (p.ProjectStartDate > (DateTime?)(new DateTime(2012, 1, 1))))
    .OrderBy(p => p.ProjectName)
    .Select(p => new
    {
        Project = p.ProjectName,
        StartDate = p.ProjectStartDate,
        FinishDate = p.ProjectFinishDate,
        ProjectCost = p.ProjectCost
    });

Either statement creates the following REST URL (all on one line).

http://<pwa_url>/_api/ProjectData/Projects?
    $filter=ProjectStartDate gt datetime'2012-01-01T00:00:00'&
    $orderby=ProjectName&
    $select=ProjectName,ProjectStartDate,ProjectFinishDate,ProjectCost

All three of the sample queries get the same data.

Element

Description

ReportingData

The schema for the reporting data in the ProjectData service.

Child elements are properties of a project and navigation properties of that project. Attributes of the Property elements specify the property name and type, and whether the property can be a null value. The NavigationProperty elements specify collections of entities, such as tasks and assignments, that are associated with a project. A navigation property uses an Association element in a query for a related entity or collection

The Key element specifies the property that is the primary key for a project query. ProjectId is the project GUID.

Property elements

The following table lists the Property elements for the Project entity. The Name, Type, and Nullable columns are attribute values for each property.

NavigationProperty elements

The following table lists attribute values for the NavigationProperty elements of the Project entity. The Name and Relationship columns contain attribute values for each navigation property.

Each Relationship attribute contains two pairs of names; each pair of names indicates the navigation direction. The first pair starts with the entity type that has the primary, or starting, role in the navigation. The second pair starts with the entity type that has the secondary, or dependent, role in the navigation. For example, for the Tasks navigation property, the primary type is Project, and the secondary type is Task.

With the Project entity, when navigating from a project to the collection of tasks, the FromRole is Project_Tasks, and the ToRole is Task_Project. The roles are reversed for the EntityType: Task (ProjectData service) entity type.
