Security.CreateProjectCategories method

Creates Project categories for web security.

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

[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Security/CreateProjectCategories", RequestNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Security/", 
	ResponseNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/Security/", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public void CreateProjectCategories(
	SecurityProjectCategoriesDataSet categories
)

The Project Permissions feature allows users or groups that have been granted the "Manage Basic Project Security" category permission to grant users and groups access to the projects that they own. They function like security categories. For more information, see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/project/archive/2010/03/04/project-2010-project-permissions.aspx

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 SvcSecurity namespace in the ProjectServerServices.dll proxy assembly. The ConfigureClientEndPoints method uses 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 in Project 2013.

NoteNote

This example assumes that the project does not have any category assigned to it.

The example calls the ReadProjectList method to get the list of projects. It then calls CreateProjectCategories to create the ProjectCategoriesDataset and then writes it to the XML file Categories.xml, as shown in the following code.

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<SecurityProjectCategoriesDataSet xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/
webservices/SecurityProjectCategoriesDataSet/">
  <ProjectCategories>
    <WSEC_CAT_UID>
    321f7584-1f8b-4065-a432-a59b9412d8ba</WSEC_CAT_UID>
    <PROJ_UID>ff9c1198-fb7b-4e9d-88a9-1415d46a3443</PROJ_UID>
  </ProjectCategories>
</SecurityProjectCategoriesDataSet>

The UpdateProjectCategories method is called to update the ProjectCategoriesDataset. The updated DataSet is written to the UpdatedCategories.xml file, as shown in the following snippet.

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<SecurityProjectCategoriesDataSet xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/
webservices/SecurityProjectCategoriesDataSet/">
  <ProjectCategories>
    <WSEC_CAT_UID>
     8ce0a52b-6218-4670-bf53-8e8df21af590</WSEC_CAT_UID>
    <PROJ_UID>aed0e69b-4470-4ddb-b063-184a9c06c9de</PROJ_UID>
  </ProjectCategories>
</SecurityProjectCategoriesDataSet>

The DeleteProjectCategories method takes an array of project GUIDs and deletes the entries in the ProjectCategoriesDataset. Following is the complete sample code.
