EntityType: Assignment (ProjectData service)

Office 2013 and later

Parent element
Child elements

Contains properties that define the reporting data for an assignment in the ProjectData service.

The following REST query uses the Assignments entity set and the ResourceName property to get the IDs of all assignments that have unassigned resources. The query is all on one line.

https://<pwa_url>/_api/ProjectData/Assignments
    ?$filter=ResourceName eq 'Unassigned Resource'
    &$select=AssignmentId

The following statement uses LINQ query syntax to retrieve Assignment 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 Assignments entity set can then be accessed as context.Assignments. For more information, see Querying OData feeds for Project 2013 reporting data.

var query =
    from a in Assignments
    orderby a.ProjectName, a.ResourceName
    select new
    {
        Project = a.ProjectName,
        Resource = a.ResourceName,
        AssignmentBookingType = a.AssignmentBookingName,
        AssignmentStartDate = a.AssignmentStartDate,
        Task = a.TaskName,
        AssignmentWork = a.AssignmentWork,
        AssignmentCost = a.AssignmentCost,
        AssisgnmentCostVariance = a.AssignmentCostVariance,
        AssignmentFinishVariance = a.AssignmentFinishVariance
    };

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

var query = Assignments
    .OrderBy(a => a.ProjectName)
    .ThenBy(a => a.ResourceName)
    .Select(a => new
    {
        Project = a.ProjectName,
        Resource = a.ResourceName,
        AssignmentBookingType = a.AssignmentBookingName,
        AssignmentStartDate = a.AssignmentStartDate,
        Task = a.TaskName,
        AssignmentWork = a.AssignmentWork,
        AssignmentCost = a.AssignmentCost,
        AssisgnmentCostVariance = a.AssignmentCostVariance,
        AssignmentFinishVariance = a.AssignmentFinishVariance
    });

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

http://<pwa_url>/_vti_bin/client.svc/ProjectData/Assignments
    ?$orderby=ProjectName,ResourceName
    &$select=ProjectName,ResourceName,AssignmentBookingName,AssignmentStartDate,TaskName,
    AssignmentWork,AssignmentCost,AssignmentCostVariance,AssignmentFinishVariance

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 an assignment and navigation properties of that assignment. 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 baselines and resources, that are associated with an assignment. A navigation property uses an Association element in a query for a related entity or collection

The Key elements specify the properties that are the primary keys for an assignment query. ProjectId is the project GUID and AssignmentId is the GUID of the assignment.

Property elements

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

Note Note

The Property elements table includes only the default assignment custom fields: CostType_R, Health_T, RBS_R, and ResourceDepartments_R. If you create a resource custom field or a task custom field that rolls down to assignments, the ReportingData schema for the Assignment entity type would contain an additional property for each new custom field. For example, if you create a resource custom field named Test Res that rolls down, the Assignment entity type would include the TestRes_R property for that assignment custom field.

NavigationProperty elements

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

Each Relationship attribute has two pairs of names; each pair of names indicates a 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 Baseline navigation property, the primary type is AssignmentBaseline, and the secondary type is Assignment. For this type of navigation, the FromRole is Assignment_Baseline, and the ToRole is AssignmentBaseline_Assignment.
