Programmatically logon on Project Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    i'm trying to logon to Project Server via a webservices located in the PSI (LoginForms) through java.

    The Project Server is well configured as I can login with forms-based to PWA through a browser.

    The response of the server is as following:

    the server couldn't process the request --> Der Client konnte die Anforderung aufgrund eines internen Fehler nicht verarbeiten. Wenn Sie weitere Informationen zum Fehler erhalten möchten, aktivieren Sie entweder IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults (entweder über das ServiceBehaviorAttribute oder das <serviceDebug>-Konfigurationsverhalten) für den Client, um die Ausnahmeinformationen zurück an den Server zu senden, oder aktivieren Sie die Ablaufverfolgung gemäß der Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 SDK-Dokumentation, und prüfen Sie die Serverablaufverfolgungsprotokolle.

    When i pass wrong credentials to the webservice the response is the expected one: false.

    I could successfully logon to a SharePoint site (using authentication webservice) through the the application, using the same credentials as in Project Server.

    Anyone can help to solve this issue?

  • Hi JoeKingman,

    Pl let us know the error response in english, as we couldnt understand the meaning of it.

    and hope the link may help you to understand the authentication mechanism and msdn post clearly explains when and what to use for the authentication.

  • Hi

    the response in english is (i have used a translator):

    The request couldnotbeprocessed by the server.--->The client couldnot handlethe requestdue to an internalerror.Ifyou would like moreinformationabout the error,either enableIncludeExceptionDetailInFaults(either through theServiceBehaviorAttributeor<serviceDebug>configurationbehavior) for the clientto sendthe exception informationback to the server, or enabletracingaccording to Microsoft.NETFramework3.0SDKdocumentationand inspecttheservertrace logs.

    I tried to disable the Windows authentication on the site but still same error. I went trough the link but it didn't help me because I'm using LoginForms for the authentication.

  • If you are using the LoginForms for the authentication, then have a look at the below links. You should be able to get the required from those links.

    Since I haven't implemented these mechanisms, I cant provide any further clarification on the above error.

  • Thanks for the answer. 

    I will try to setup the C# application and test it with the Project SDK.
