Detailed Description

project_online.jpgThis handler makes a REST call Microsoft Project Online to the Project Server API to update an existing task under a specified Project. After authenticating against the Project Server using the inputted username and password, the handler first makes a call to Project to get a FormDigestValue which is needed as a part of the authentication for future calls. That value is then used along with any of the update values that were passed as parameters to make a PATCH request to the API to update the specified task. Any errors that occur during this process will be caught and re-raised by the handler.
