Archive Web Service

The Archive class is the primary class in the [Archive Web service] namespace. The Archive class includes methods that manage backup and restore of projects and other Project Server entities.

Note Note

In the ASMX web service, Archive is a class. In the WCF service, Archive is an interface that is implemented in the ArchiveClient class. For information about using the ArchiveClient class in a WCF-based application, see the Archive class constructor.

The [Archive Web service] namespace is an arbitrary name for a reference to the Archive.asmx web service (or the Archive.svc service) of the PSI in Microsoft Project Server 2010. The Archive class methods support the Daily Schedule Backup, Administrative Backup, and Administrative Restore page links in the Database Administration section of the Server Settings page in Project Web App.

The Archive class methods enable you to read and update the archive schedule. You can archive all projects in the Draft and Published databases. You can save a specified project and version description to the Archive database or delete a project in the Archive database. You can also save to the Archive database, or restore from the Archive to the Published database, the following Project Server entities:

  • Projects

  • Enterprise resource pool and calendars

  • Enterprise custom fields

  • The Enterprise Global data

  • View definitions

  • System settings

  • Security category and group settings

Archive methods typically use or return one of the following objects:
