Trigger in Project Online to update from external data source RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working on Project online- user creates project with basic info. 

    And, custom fields data should be updated automatically from external database(SQL Server). Also when data is modified in SQL server, it needs to be updated to project online through job agents using VS-CSOM perhaps

    What would be the best way to trigger an initial custom field update when the project is created? Thank you in advance

  • Hello,

    You will need to look at creating remote event receivers to handle this if you want it automated on project create / publish etc.

  • Thank you Paul. That was a very good start for me. However, most of the documentation shows the remote event receivers used with lists or custom lists. How do I hook it to the "Project general information" for the trigger initially since it does not appear in the list like calendars, tasks or even custom list.
