The ObjectLinkProvider service is deprecated in Project Server 2013 and is not usable with Project Online.

We recommend that you use the RelatedItemManager class in the SharePoint CSOM to create OLP-type apps for both on-premises installations of Project Server 2013 and for Project Online. The Microsoft.SharePoint namespace does not include a RelatedItemManager class.

You can use the RelatedItemManager class in the SharePoint CSOM to create, read, and delete web object links between items in the tasks list and the other lists in a project site. For example, to add a link from a task item to an issue, you can use the AddSingleLink method or either of two similar methods, AddSingleLinkFromUrl or AddSingleLinkToUrl. The RelatedItemManager class also includes methods for deleting a web object link and reading related items. For the equivalent class in the JSOM (the JavaScript object model), see SP.RelatedItemManager object (sp.js).

The ObjectLinkProvider class methods can create, delete, and read web objects and links between Project Server entities and external objects. By default, the methods can link projects and tasks with objects such as document, issue, risk, and deliverable list items in on-premises project sites. You can also link external objects to each other or link projects and tasks to other kinds of objects, such as file system objects.
