The Get-SPProjectPCSSettings cmdlet lets users read the settings that control the operations of the Project Calculation Engine on Project Server 2013. The cmdlet requires you to identify the Project Server 2013 Service Application.

Windows PowerShell with Project Server


Parameter Required Type Description




The Project Server 2013 Service Application for which the settings are to be read.




Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.


Get-SPProjectPCSSettings -sa "Project Service Application"

This example reads the settings for the Project Calculation Engine running on the "Project Service Application" service application.
