Exporting Project Server data into SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have Project Server 2007 (built on WSS) and a separate SharePoint (MOSS) instance.

    We require some Project Information from within Project Server to be transferred into MOSS automatically.

    Is this possible?

  • You can either do a server side integration, most likely using something
    like the BDC (which I think there's an article about somewhere) or a client
    side integration using something like EPMLive's tool for synchronizing Project
    Professional with SharePoint.
    It kind of depends on which data you want pushed over, and how the workflow
    would work.

  • Thanks very much for the reply Andrew.

    So in Project Server, we have 'Project Information' (the enterprise fields) that we need sent over to a LIST in MOSS.  We'd like this to be automatic.  If you go into Project Client and choose Project-->Project Information, the fields in here (some are custom) are what we need exported into a LIST that resides in MOSS.

    Would you suggest using BDC or client side integration?

  • It's kind of up to you and the SharePoint talent that you have on hand.
    Personally, I prefer to avoid customization unless it's absolutely required.
    I'd start by doing a Proof of Concept with the ProjectPublisher tool to
    see if it meets your needs and budget. I think they have a 30 day free trial
    or something. That would perhaps eliminate any need for developing custom
    If that didn't meet your needs, I'd start investigating the BDC/BCS option
    (it got renamed in 2010). If you have some SharePoint Development talent
    on staff, the BCS implementation could also be relatively easy and simple.
    Of course, if you asked a developer the same question, I am sure they'd tell
    you the opposite.

  • I've downloaded this product and from reading about it, it seems it will do what I want but I will need some assistance.  I'm trying to get in contact with the company but can't seem to yet.  Are you very familiar with the product?

  • I played around with a trial version once, but that's about it. I know Rob
    Schneider's used it (I think). He frequents these groups. You may want
    to post with the product name in the title.
    Have you called up EPMLive?
