Dependencies in OData Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a query...as usual :-)

    We have been looking at OData recently and noticed the following:

    <SiteName>/PWA/_api/projectdata/Projects(guid'<>')/Dependencies

    We initially thought it was Dependencies from 'Deliverables and Dependencies' and thought of testing this out. But it is blank.

    Does someone know what this is?

    Many thanks.

  • Hi,

    The odata feed retrieves information from the out of the box feature deliverables dependencies.

    He wrote a blog a while ago about this feature:

    http://psbehindthescene.blogspot.fr/2015/07/why-deliverabledependency-feature-is.html

    In case you were looking for predecessors, this information is not in the ProjectData ODATA feed but you can get it programmatically using JSOM or the REST API for JSOM: /pwa/_api/ProjectServer/Projects('<ProjectGUID>')/Tasks('<TaskGUID>')/Predecessors /pwa/_api/ProjectServer/Projects('<ProjectGUID>')/Tasks('<TaskGUID>')/Successors


    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Guillaume,

    Many thanks for responding as always.

    We tested the OOTB feature as mentioned in my original question. We ensured the projects are saved and published, but there is no information against this attribute for the projects.

    Have you tested this?

    Thank you,

    SJ

  • I tested the feature (and used it), but I didn't tested to query data through odata feed. Have you tried first to query deliverables for the source project?

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Guillaume,

     Apologies for the delayed response.

    I have been using the feature for a very long time. So no issues there. :-)

    As mentioned, we don't think the query is related to Deliverables and Dependencies. Hence was wondering what this refers to.

    <SiteName>/PWA/_api/projectdata/Projects(guid'<>')/Dependencies

    Thank you,

    SJ
