RemoveDependencyRow method is not working properly RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying to use

    RemoveDependencyRow method to remove the interproject dependencies.


    QueueUpdateProject is throwing error saying OnlyAddition allowed.

    Have you tried using the RemoveDependencyRow method successfully anytime?

    Here is the CODE.

                        const int PROJECT_ENTITY_TYPE_DEPENDENCY = 16;

                               SvcProject.ProjectDataSet projD = new SvcProject.ProjectDataSet();                   

                            projD = projectClient.ReadProjectEntities(projUid, PROJECT_ENTITY_TYPE_DEPENDENCY, SvcProject.DataStoreEnum.WorkingStore);

                        foreach (DataRow dataRow in dependencyDataSet.Tables[0].Rows)
                            SvcProject.ProjectDataSet.DependencyRow dependencyRow
                                = projD.Dependency.FindByLINK_UIDPROJ_UID(((Guid)linkGuid,
                                , (Guid)projGuid);

                        jobId = new Guid();
                        startTime = DateTime.Now;
                        projectClient.QueueUpdateProject(jobId, sessionId, projD, false);

                                             1, queueSystemClient, startTime);

                        string SESSION_DESCRIPTION = "PSI CheckIn utility";
                        // CheckIn the Project
                        jobId = Guid.NewGuid();
                        projectClient.QueueCheckInProject(jobId, projUid, true, sessionId, SESSION_DESCRIPTION);

                        // Publish the Project
                        startTime = DateTime.Now;
                        jobId = Guid.NewGuid();
                        projectClient.QueuePublish(jobId, projUid, true, String.Empty);
                                             1, queueSystemClient, startTime);

  • Is this wrong thread or no one has tried removing external dependencies using the code?

    The code may be a wrong approach. Not looking to get the code however to get the direction to resolve "How to remove external dependencies using PSI" for Project Server 2010 projects.

  • Could it be that you're looping through several dependencies:

    (foreach (DataRow dataRow in dependencyDataSet.Tables[0].Rows))

    and then the code tries to remove the exact same dependency several times in that loop:

    SvcProject.ProjectDataSet.DependencyRow dependencyRow
                                = projD.Dependency.FindByLINK_UIDPROJ_UID(((Guid)linkGuid,
                                , (Guid)projGuid);

  • Lars,

    Thanks for the reply. 

    During the debug I checked and the dependencies did not remove the same one multiple times. So that is not the case.

    Just spoke to Microsoft support and I was told that addition/deletion of "External Dependencies" are NOT supported through PSI.

    Has anyone done it before by some other means?
