As Microsoft transitions its project business management software story to the still-new Dynamics 365 Project Operations, customers and consultants alike must adjust to new ways of building solutions.

In the case of API-based access, we were accustomed to an approach offered by the predecessor to Project Operations, Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation (PSA), that allowed users to call APIs to do CUD operations (Create, Update and Delete) on entities like Project, Project Task, Resource Assignment, Project Team Member and Project Task Dependency, Project Operations (PO) blocks the user to perform basic operations.

With the introduction of Project Operations, architectural differences have meant we lost that API access. For customers, the need for API access remained strong and their requests are at a peak on today’s projects.
