Project Server 2013: The INSERT statement conflicted with the FOREIGN KEY constraint


When publishing project you might get the following error:

Error: ReportingProjectChangeMessageFailed (24006) – The INSERT statement conflicted with the FOREIGN KEY constraint

The good news is that Microsoft have now released a hotfix for this.


Preferred Option: This was a known issue which was fixed in the Project Server 2013 August 2014 Hotfix

Installing this hotfix or later update to August 2014 should resolve this issue.

Non Preferred Option

It was found that this happens when the baseline information somehow gets corrupted.

Step 1: Find out the tasks where the Baseline is corrupted

To find which tasks are corrupted run the following query:

Select bp.ProjectName, mt.TaskName, * from MSP_EpmAssignmentBaseline as ba

Inner join MSP_EpmTask as mt on ba.TaskUID = mt.TaskUID

Inner join MSP_EpmProject as bp on ba.ProjectUID = bp.ProjectUID

Where AssignmentUID not in (select AssignmentUID from MSP_EpmAssignment)

Step 2: Re-baseline those tasks by opening the respective projects and re-baselining those tasks
