Getting logged in user Project Server Credential in MS Project Add IN to pass in PSI call. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have  developed a MSProject Addin  using VSTO and I am facing issue in calling Project Server PSI services through it. I need to pass the logged in user credentials of Project professional but didn't find a way to get it.

    I tried Using Application.UserName but it returns only the username but to call PSI we need both username and password. I also tried with Default credentials but in that case it searches Windows credential manager , if any authenticated user found of logged in domain then call is successful and if there is no user  present of the domain then gives Unauthentication  error.

    So, please suggest a way how can I carry out authentication process for calling my PSI services  using the actual user who had logged in to project professional.

  • Hi Supriya,

    VSTO provides only the "skeleton" (Visual Studio template) for creating an Add-in. It does nothing else with the Project application. For project issue, I will move this thread to the more related forum.


    Thanks for your understanding.
