PSI Bulk Project update on Custom Field lookup tables. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using PSI Is it possible to update project custom filed which has a lookup table. I tried but it throws the following exception

    An unhandled exception of type 'System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException' occurred in System.Web.Services.dll

    Additional information: ProjectServerError(s) LastError=CICOCheckedOutInOtherSession Instructions: Pass this into PSClientError constructor to access all error information

    Any Idea on this.

  • Hello,

    If you are trying to update the lookup table values, see this PowerShell example:

  • Hi Vikram,

    You can still use Paul Mather's script as reference. One step I assume is missing in your code is to make sure the project is not checked out already by another user when you try to update the custom field.

    Your steps would be like:

    1. check if project checked out

    2. if not, check out and run the rest of the steps

    3. if yes, do nothing?

    Hope this helps
