Updating Project Manager via API

Is it possible to update the Project Manager via the API? I've tried both the Patch Project and Update Project methods and receive a success response to the call, however, the project is not actually updated.

We are using a placeholder record when the projects are created, but will want to update them when a resource has been identified.

Hello Corrine,

How exactly are you attempting to PATCH the value of the project's manager?

I'm not 100% sure it can be updated anyway by API because the AdminUID property in the API documentation doesn't show as editable.

I see the edit flags are not present for the Admin and Admin2 properties. I was confused because when I tried to use the Patch method from the TDX Projects connector in iPaaS, it listed some of the Admin2 properties in the available path. It would be more useful if the Patch method would not send a successful response if the property cannot be updated.

However, I understand that if the attributes are not editable, that would explain why trying to update the AdminUID or Admin2UID values did not work in my tests.

I’ll submit an enhancement request to request that this something added to the API, since otherwise, it requires someone to update the information via TDAdmin and we are trying limit the number of users in there.
