Improvements and fixes

This security update contains fixes for the following nonsecurity issues in Project Server:

  • The display name of the Project Detail Page (PDP) isn't updated correctly.

  • Occasionally, administrators may have to restore server metadata, such as the enterprise custom fields. Although the restore process starts the Reporting Database Refresh queue job, the following items might occur:

    • The queue job fails.

    • When you access reporting data either directly from the reporting schema or through Open Data Protocol (OData), no data is returned.

    • In the Universal Logging Service logs, the following error is reported:
