Project Server error codes

This topic contains tables of error codes for the Project Server Interface (PSI) in Project Server 2013. The tables are arranged by functional area and by error code range.

Project Server 2013 processes and PSI methods have error code numbers that are generally arranged by functional area. The Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library.PSErrorID enumeration is duplicated in WebSvcProject.PSErrorID; they list the error codes in alphabetical order by name. This topic lists the error codes in tables that are arranged by the PSI class or functional area and by the error identifier (ID) number.


Many of the error codes are general and can have multiple possible causes. For more information about errors, you can do the following:

  • For ASMX-based applications, use System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException with the PSClientError object to show a list or hierarchy of errors in a PSI method call. See Error Code Example for ASMX.
  • For WCF-based applications, you can use System.ServiceModel.FaultException to get a PSClientError object and also to get additional error information. See Error Code Example for WCF.
  • Use the application event log on the Project Server computer.
  • Use the Unified Logging Service (ULS) trace logs. For an explanation, see the Checking Errors section in Getting Started with Development for Project 2010.
  • For more information about using ULS logs, see the Project Support blog article Project Server 2010: What to Expect when you get the Unexpected, and search the blog for "reading ULS logs."
  • To help find or watch for specific issues in ULS data, use the ULS Viewer.
  • Use the Microsoft SQL Server Profiler to help catch or monitor database errors. For more information, see SQL Server Profiler.
  • Many of the error codes are used only internally. For example, because the ExchangeSync and PWA web services are not supported for third-party development, you are not likely to see error codes from methods in those areas, such as the Rules and StatusReports methods. However, tables in this article include all Project Server error codes for completeness.

Error code example for ASMX

To get a list of errors if you get an exception when you call a PSI method, pass the SoapException object to the Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library.PSClientError class constructor. You can then use GetAllErrors to store the error information in a PSErrorInfo array and enumerate the errors, as in the following example.


The PSErrorInfo object does not include all of the information you might need. For example, if you use Resource.CheckOutResources where one of the resources is already checked out, PSErrorInfo shows the reason for failure for each resource that cannot be checked out, but does not include the resource name or GUID. For a way to get more information in an ASMX-based application, see CheckOutResources .

Error code example for WCF

To get a list of errors if you get a System.ServiceModel.FaultException when you call a PSI method in a WCF-based application, you can extract a PSClientError object from the FaultException object. You can then use GetAllErrors to store the error information in a PSErrorInfo array and enumerate the errors, as in the previous ASMX example.

In addition to the data in the PSClientError object, the FaultException object can include other types of errors, such as failure to connect to Project Server. The errOut parameter of the GetPSClientError method in the previous example shows additional information. For example, the CreateProject4Department code sample in the QueueCreateProject method includes comments that show how to create errors when setting properties in the ProjectCustomFields table. When the application is run, the errOut parameter includes the errinfo element and other data (formatted here from the console output).
