MSProject Project Custom Field Update Version 1

This handler makes a REST call Microsoft Project Online to the Project Server API to update a single custom field for a project in MS Project. After authenticating against the Project Server using the inputted username and password, the handler first makes a call to Project to get a FormDigestValue which is needed as a part of the authentication for future calls. A second call is then made to retrieve a list of the custom fields that are being used on the server, so that the field display name can be converted to a id for the final call. Lastly, the information is collected from the previous calls to make the call to Project to actually update the custom field. Any errors that occur during this process will be caught and re-raised by the handler.


Name Description
Project Id The id of the project where you want to update custom fields.
Custom Field Name The name of the custom field that you wish to update.
Custom Field Value The value that you want to be added to the Custom Field.
