Element

Description

EntityContainer element: ReportingData

Contains definitions of entity sets for internal use in queries of the online Reporting database.

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

var query =
    from t in Tasks
    where (t.TaskIndex > 0)
    orderby t.ProjectName, t.TaskIndex
    select new
    {
        Project = t.ProjectName,
        Task = t.TaskName,
        TaskWork = t.TaskWork,
        TaskCost = t.TaskCost,
        TaskDuration = t.TaskDuration,
        TaskDurationVariance = t.TaskDurationVariance,
        TaskCostVariance = t.TaskCostVariance
    };

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

var query = Tasks
    .Where(t => (t.TaskIndex > (Int32)0))
    .OrderBy(t => t.ProjectName)
    .ThenBy(t => t.TaskIndex)
    .Select(t => new
    {
        Project = t.ProjectName,
        Task = t.TaskName,
        TaskWork = t.TaskWork,
        TaskCost = t.TaskCost,
        TaskDuration = t.TaskDuration,
        TaskDurationVariance = t.TaskDurationVariance,
        TaskCostVariance = t.TaskCostVariance
    });

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

http://ServerName/pwa/_vti_bin/client.svc/ProjectServerData/Tasks()?
     $filter=TaskIndex gt 0&
     $orderby=ProjectName,TaskIndex&$select=ProjectName,TaskName,TaskWork,
     TaskCost,TaskDuration,TaskDurationVariance,TaskCostVariance

All three of the sample queries get the same data.

Each entity set has a specific page-size limit. For information about page limits for on-premises and online ProjectData queries and how to set the on-premises page limit, see ProjectData - OData service reference.
