  • Always check with your MSFT licensing rep.  That being said, my rule of thumb
    is that if you access live Project Server data, which in this case you are,
    you will need a CAL.

  • To add to Anderew's post there can be some situations where if you are providing data to External users the licensing can be slightly differnt than the simple CAL model but for sure if you are hitting Project Server data then there is likely to be some licensing impact.

  • Thanks for the response, is it feasible to populate that data in temp table then display it.

  • Feasible? Yes. But I dont know if that gets you out of the licensing issues.

    you should really talk to a Microsoft licensing rep about this. There are some technical details to these kinds of things that Im not great with.
