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

The following REST query uses the TaskBaselines entity set and the BaselineNumber, ProjectId, and TaskId keys to get the specified task baseline. The query is all on one line.

Description

ReportingData

The schema for the reporting data in the ProjectData service.

Child elements are properties of a task baseline and navigation properties of that task baseline. 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 projects, that are associated with a project. A navigation property uses an Association element in a query for a related entity collection

The Key elements specify the properties that are the primary keys for a task baseline query. ProjectId is the project GUID, TaskId is the task GUID, and BaselineNumber is the number of the task baseline.

Property elements

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

Description

BaselineNumber

Edm.Int32

false

Key
A number that identifies a project baseline.

ProjectId

Edm.Guid

false

Key
The GUID that identifies the project.

ProjectName

Edm.String

true

The name of the project.

TaskBaselineBudgetCost

Edm.Decimal

false

The cost of the budgeted amount of work as projected in the baseline.

TaskBaselineBudgetWork

Edm.Decimal

false

The budgeted amount of work as projected in the baseline.

TaskBaselineCost

Edm.Decimal

false

The total planned cost for a task. The baseline cost is known as budget at completion (BAC) for earned value.

TaskBaselineDeliverableFinishDate

Edm.DateTime

true

The published deliverable finish date and time for a task as projected in the baseline.

TaskBaselineDeliverableStartDate

Edm.DateTime

true

The published deliverable start date and time for a task.

Task BaselineDuration

Edm.Decimal

false

The amount of time estimated to complete a task.

TaskBaselineDurationString

Edm.String

true

A string that contains the projected task duration.

TaskBaselineFinishDate

Edm.DateTime

true

The projected completion date of a task.

TaskBaselineFinishDateString

Edm.String

true

A string that contains the projected task finish date and time.

TaskBaselineFixedCost

Edm.Decimal

false

A set task cost that is projected in the baseline and that remains constant regardless of the task duration or the work performed by a resource.

TaskBaselineStartDate

Edm.DateTime

true

The projected task start date and time.

TaskBaselineStartDateString

Edm.String

true

A string that contains the projected task start date and time.

TaskBaselineWork

Edm.Decimal

false

The total hours that are scheduled in the baseline projection for a task.

TaskId

Edm.Guid

false

Key
The GUID that identifies the task.

TaskName

Edm.String

true

The name of the task.

NavigationProperty elements

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

There are two types of Relationship attributes. One type contains 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 Task navigation property, the primary type is TaskBaseline, and the secondary type is Task. For this type of navigation, the FromRole is TaskBaseline_Task, and the ToRole is Task_Baselines.

The other type of Relationship attribute contains a single pair of names. The first name in the pair is the primary entity type in the navigation. The second name in the pair is the secondary entity type in the navigation. For example, in the Project navigation property relationship, TaskBaseline is the primary entity type and Project is the secondary entity type.
