I want to remove a resource from a given project but keep getting jobStatus = 'unknown' and the error description is empty.

Got no problem adding resources.
So if anyone got some code to remove a resource, please share.
project.CheckOutProject(ProjectUID, sessionID, ((string)Langauge.Txt["RmvResSessionDesc"]));
projectTeamDS.ProjectTeam.RemoveProjectTeamRow(rowToRemove);
project.QueueUpdateProjectTeam(jobID, sessionID, ProjectUID, projectTeamDS);
queue.WaitForQueue(jobID); //here i get jobStatus = 'unknown' 
project.QueueCheckInProject(jobID, ProjectUID, true, sessionID, ((string)Langauge.Txt["RmvResSessionDesc"]));
queue.WaitForQueue(jobID);
 
WaitForQueue() //standart taken from MS
{
            WSQueue.JobState jobState;
            const int QUEUE_WAIT_TIME = 2; // two seconds
            bool jobDone = false;
            string xmlError = string.Empty;
            int wait = 0;
            wait = queue.GetJobWaitTime(jobId);
 
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(wait * 1000);
            do
            {
                jobState = queue.GetJobCompletionState(jobId, out xmlError);
                
                if (jobState == WSQueue.JobState.Success)
                {
                    jobDone = true;
                }
                else
                {
                    if (jobState == WSQueue.JobState.Unknown
                    || jobState == WSQueue.JobState.Failed
                    || jobState == WSQueue.JobState.FailedNotBlocking
                    || jobState == WSQueue.JobState.CorrelationBlocked
                    || jobState == WSQueue.JobState.Canceled)
                    {
                        // If the job failed, error out
                        throw (new ApplicationException("Queue request failed \"Job State: " + jobState + 
                                "\"<br />Job ID: " + jobId + 
                                ".<br />" + xmlError +
                                "<br />Estimated wait time:" + wait + "<br />iteration:" + iteration));
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(QUEUE_WAIT_TIME * 1000);
                    }
                }
            }
            while (!jobDone);
}

I don't have any code for thise, but I've got a couple ideas.

Does your queue job actually fail? Use the PWA web interface to check the queue jobs. Make sure to show successful jobs as well as failed and cancelled.

Also, does your WaitforQueue code run as a user with enough permissions to manage the Queue? That's more than usual Project Manager permissions, for example.

The queue job never shows, as it is never in the queue, when i check in the project that queue job shows in the list.

User got all permissions possible on computer and in PWA, (system admin)

If the job isn't in the queue, then "Unknown" is the correct result for WaitForQueue, as I understand it. Your problem is earlier in the code: check the QueueUpdateProjectTeam call.  Is this throwing any exceptions? Are you using a new GUID for the job?

No exceptions, and yes new Guid.
I have made it work for the add resource.

However i looked at ProjTool, and found that it worked if i remove the resource like this:
'See code snipped'.
But i can't show the form from a webpart, and if i did'nt call the show() method the DataSource is'nt loaded.


int index = projectTeamDS.ProjectTeam.Rows.IndexOf(row);
System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView remover = new System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView();
remover.DataSource = projectTeamDS.ProjectTeam;
((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)remover).BeginInit();
System.Windows.Forms.Form f = new System.Windows.Forms.Form();
f.Controls.Add(remover);
f.Show();
remover.DataSource = projectTeamDS.ProjectTeam;
Console.WriteLine("index: " + index + " count: " + remover.Rows.Count + " count: " + projectTeamDS.ProjectTeam.Count);
if (index == -1)
{
   Console.WriteLine("res not round");
   return; 
}
remover.Rows.RemoveAt(index);

I don't think your code snippit above actually removes the resource from the project. That only removes them from the Datasource, but doesn't save that back to the project.

When a resource is really removed from a project, many other things need to happen: Assignments need to be deleted, Task work may need to change, &c. Removing a row from the projectTeam won't do these things. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure if RemoveProjectTeamRow() will do those things either. You may need to remove assignments manually.

For the resource you are trying to remove: do you get different behavior if you try removing a team member/resource that has no assignments in the project?

Yes i know, the code snip was put in instead of projectTeamDS.ProjectTeam.RemoveProjectTeamRow(rowToRemove);
then i check in/out the project and update. I can see that the resource is removed from the team when i browse it through PWA

Hmm. I surprised that worked.

As a workaround, can you force the DS to load? I forget the method but something like refresh() or load()

I'm about out of options. I think a call to MS support may be your best answer. The documentation for RemoveProjectTeamRow hardly deserves the word documentation.


Sorry I couldn't help...

No tryed several things, cant force it to load. However i decompiled the system.windows.forms.dll and found the source code for DataGridView here i replicaeted the remove code and now it works.

If anyone else should need this solution, my complete test prg is in code snip!!
