Project Server 2013 - Build Project team in PWA - CSOM


In this article, I will show you how to build team for selected project in PWA site using CSOM in project server 2013. In this series of articles, I am taking windows application as a working example to read/write data from PWA.
Prerequisites
1.      Visual studio 2010/2012/2013/2015

2.      Copy Microsoft.ProjectServer.Client.dll from SharePoint 2013 servers from the location

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI

Step1: Create windows application from visual studio

Step2: Add Microsoft.ProjectServer.Client.dll

Step3: Add one two text boxes and one button control to the form.

Step4: Declare PWA site URL in form load. Change URL accordingly based on your environment

private const string pwaPath = "https://dev.xxx.com/PWA/";

Step5: Declare project context and project type on Form load

private static ProjectContext projContext;

Step6: Add following code on button click event

private void buildProjectTeam_Click (object sender, EventArgs e)

{

// create PWA context

projContext = new ProjectContext(pwaPath); 

// Access with default logged in credentials

projContext.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials;

try
             {        

projContext.Load(projContext.Projects); 

                projContext.ExecuteQuery();           

// pass project GUID in place of combo box selection

PublishedProject pubProject = projContext.Projects.GetByGuid(Guid.Parse(comboProjects.SelectedValue.ToString())); 

projContext.Load(pubProject);

                          projContext.ExecuteQuery(); 
                        
                        DraftProject projCheckOut = pubProject.CheckOut(); 

                projContext.Load(projCheckOut.ProjectResources);
 
                projContext.ExecuteQuery(); 

ProjectResourceCreationInformation resourceInfo = new ProjectResourceCreationInformation(); 

                resourceInfo.Id = Guid.NewGuid();

                resourceInfo.Name = txtResource1.Text; // Replace resource name 

                projCheckOut.ProjectResources.Add(resourceInfo);

                projCheckOut.Update(); 

                projContext.Load(projCheckOut);

                projContext.ExecuteQuery(); 

                projContext.Projects.Update();

                projContext.ExecuteQuery(); 

                projCheckOut.Publish(true);

                projCheckOut.CheckIn(true);

                projContext.ExecuteQuery();

            }

            catch(Exception ex)
            {              

            }

        }       

Happy project server programming...
