Sample Reports and Templates list are not accessible in project server 2010 suddenly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    The sample reports and Templates in BI in project server 2010 was working fine. But not sure what happened, the two links got removed form the quick launch and also though we can see the sample reports and Templates in All site contents page, when we clicking on the link, we are getting Error: HTTP 404.

    Later we added the Sample Reports and Templates link in the quick launch, but that page is not accessible (HTTP 404 Error)

    Please help me to fix the issue.


    Thanks, Lovely

  • Hi Lovely,

    Can you please check the URLs like:
    http://servername/PWA/ProjectBICenter/Sample%20Reports/Forms/AllItems.aspx

    http://servername/PWA/ProjectBICenter/Templates/Forms/AllItems.aspx

    Remove the Servername from above urls & keep the one which you have in your PWA instance.
    Do you still see the 404 Error? Can you please check the recycle bin to make sure if these are not deleted?

  • Ok, did some research on Forums & found few thread which might help..

    I'd recommend you to check your ULS logs (14\LOGS). 404 error in browser often has underlying records in ULS, which provide the real error message.

  • Hi Lovely,

    BI shows as a site in PWA-->Site Settings-->Site and Workspaces. If , for some reasons, it gets deleted, reprovisioning the PWA (not deleting the site) will bring it back with correct permissions.

    Please perform this during non-production hours.

    1. From the CA-->"Manage Project Web App Sites" page, Click the drop down and select Edit option.

    2. In the Edit Project Web App site, click on Edit.

    3. Wait until the site shows "provisioned"

    If you have a test environment, you can try deleting the BI in PWA. You get 404 error when you browse BI. Then try provisioning PWA. It should get the BI center in PWA.

    It worked in my test server.

    Thanks,

    Laksh

  • Thanks a lot for the solutions.

    I was getting the error: 404 for below links too:

    http://<Servername>/PWA/ProjectBICenter/Sample%20Reports/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2FPWA%2FProjectBICenter%2FSample%20Reports%2FEnglish%20%28United%20States%29&Folder

    http://<servername>/PWA/ProjectBICenter/Templates/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2FPWA%2FProjectBICenter%2FTemplates%2FEnglish%20%28United%20States%29&Folder

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I took template with content for sample reports and templates from a different PWA and deleted the Sample reports and Templates which had issue (deleted the libraries from site settings-->Site Libraries and Lists --> customize <LibraryName>) 

    Then Uploaded the template taken and modified the connection info and exported the connection file to the data connection library with same Name.

    Currently its working fine.


    Thanks, Lovely
