Bulk update of existing Work Plan Tasks for new Tasks added to Work Plan Template

Hi,

 

Having problems finding a way to have 2 tasks just added to a Work Plan template flow down to existing Work Plans that were created using that template.

 

The number of projects that need to be updated makes a manual implementation impossible so need something automated.

 

I have been looking for an Open Interface capability to do this but am cannot find reference to any.

 

Conversion script proving difficult due to large number of inter-related tables, but in particular the existence of the "VERSION" column within WP_TASKS, not sure of the correct logic used by the system when it populates that.

 

Anybody with any prior experiences or ideas on how to do this, it  would really be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

you can make use of Open APIs published by PPM as Web Services - the documentation explains very clearly how to do it, and there are also examples.

 

cheers
