Project ID not available in Workflow Variables RRS feed

  • Question

  • New feature is released for Project Online where unique Project ID gets generated for every Project.

    Release of this feature is explained at:

    Project ID gets generated and is available to view in PDPs.

    We need to send emails at various stages in Project Workflows and need to include Project ID as part of emails triggered from workflows.

    We can not find Project ID in workflow variables.

  • Hi Abhijeet,

    I see the same results, the value is not available in SharePoint designer workflows.

    Further investigating: 

    The field is also not available in the OData feed "_Api/ProjectData".

    But! it is available in the "_Api/ProjectServer" feed, where it shows up as "ProjectIdentifier".

    So creating reports is possible, but not easy.

    Maybe a call to report this as a "bug"/ missing feature?

    Kind regards,

  • Thanks Erik.

    Yes I think a call to report a bug seems to be way forward...
