Server Side Event Handlers (Project Server 2013 settings)

Summary: Use the Server Side Event Handler page in SharePoint Central Administration to associate event handlers with Project Server 2013 server side events.
Applies to: Project Server 2013

The Server Side Event Handler settings are available through the Project Server 2013 Server Settings page in the Operational Policies section. In Project Server 2013, these settings are available in SharePoint Central Administration. To access and configure this setting, you must be a farm administrator.

Configure Server Side Event Handlers

Project Server 2013 provides public events that enable development of custom processes such as adding and enforcing business rules, validation, data processing, notification services, and workflow. These custom processes are written as server-side event handlers by developers in an organization and can be associated to Project Server 2013 events through the Server Side Event Handlers page in Project Web App Server Settings. For example, developers in your organization can create an event handler that starts a custom workflow. Through the Server Side Event Handlers page, you can associate that event handler with the Project Published event so that a workflow starts when the event occurs.

To associate an event handler with a server-side event

  1. In SharePoint Central Administration, click ** Application Management**.

  2. On the Application Management page, in the Service Application section, click Manage Service Applications.

  3. On the Service Applications page, click the Project Application Service that contains the Project Web App instance for which you want to access the Server Side Event handler settings.

  4. On the Manage Project Web Apps page, click the drop-down menu for the PWA instance for which you want to access the Server Side Event handler settings, and click Manage.

  5. On the Server Settings page, in the Operational Policies section, click Server Side Event Handlers.

  6. On the Server Side Event Handlers page, in the Events list, find the event that you want to associate your new event handler with, and then click the Event Source listed next to the Event Name (for example, click the Project event source for the Published event name).

    In the Event Handlers section, the Event Source and Event Name should be populated with the event that you selected. Any event handlers that are currently associated with the event appear in the Event Handlers list.

  7. Click New Event Handler.

  8. In the New Event Handler page, enter the following information for the event handler that you want to associate with the selected event:

  9. In the Display Information section, enter the event handler name. You can also optionally enter a description of the event handler.

  10. In the System Information section, in the Assembly Name field, enter the full name of the strongly named event handler assembly. For example:

    TestCreatingProject, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=92978aaaab03ff98
  11. In the Class Name field, enter the fully qualified name of the class that implements the event handler functionality. For example: Microsoft.SDK.Project.Samples.TestCreatingProject.CheckProjectDepartment.

  12. In the Order field, provide the order number of the event handler. If it is the only event handler associated with the event, enter1. If there are multiple event handlers associated with the event, enter the order number in which this event handler will be executed.

  13. In the Endpoint URL field, enter the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Endpoint URL. If you are adding a legacy on-premises event handler, you can leave this field blank.
