Improvements and fixes


This security update contains improvements and fixes for the following nonsecurity issues.

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have a Project Web App (PWA) site and Project Server 2013 in your organization.
    • You log in to the PWA instance, and then you create an enterprise custom field for the resource entity and another enterprise custom field for the project entity.
    • You start Project Professional 2013 and connect to Project Server 2013, add a resource, and set a value to its custom field.
    • You save the project and check it in.
    • In PWA, you locate the Project Center, drill into the project, and select a Project Details Page (PDP) if you have not already selected one.
    • You make a change to the project custom field and then save the project from the PDP.
    • In Project Professional 2013, you open the project and view the custom field value.

    In this situation, the value of the resource custom field is missing. 

  • The Manage Queue page may not to be loaded if there is a duplicate Reporting (Project Publish) job. In addition, you may receive the following error message:     

    Error System.ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added.
