Manage Project Online projects, tasks, and resources by using Azure Logic Apps

With Azure Logic Apps and the Project Online connector, you can create automated tasks and workflows for your projects, tasks, and resources in Project Online through Office 365. Your workflows can perform these actions and others, for example:

  • Monitor when new projects, tasks, or resources are created. Or, monitor when new projects are published.
  • Create new projects, tasks, or resources.
  • List existing projects or tasks.
  • Check out, check in, or publish projects.

Project Online helps you plan, prioritize, and manage projects and project portfolio investments from almost anywhere on almost any device by providing powerful project management capabilities. You can use Project Online triggers that get responses from Project Online and make the output available to other actions. You can use actions in your logic apps to perform various tasks in Project Online. If you're new to logic apps, review What is Azure Logic Apps?

Prerequisites

Connect to Project Online

Before your logic app can access any service, you must create a connection between your logic app and that service. If you didn't previously create this connection, you're prompted for connection information when you add a trigger or action for that service to your logic app. The Logic Apps Designer provides an easy way for you to create this connection directly from your logic app.

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal, and open your logic app in Logic App Designer, if not open already.

  2. Choose a path:

    • For blank logic apps, in the search box, enter "Project Online" as your filter. Under the triggers list, select the trigger you want.

      -or-

    • For existing logic apps, under the step where you want to add an action, choose New step. In the search box, enter "Project Online" as your filter. Under the actions list, select the action you want.

  3. If you're prompted to sign in to Project Online, sign in now.

    Your credentials authorize your logic app to create a connection to Project Online and access your data.

  4. Provide the necessary details for your selected trigger or action and continue building your logic app's workflow.
