Can you retrieve a task list for a user without specifying that user's connection settings?


Level 1


I would like to know if it is possible to obtain a list of workspace tasks for a user of my choice. In the following code, taken from the relevant quickstart, I am able to retrieve a list of tasks for "administrator" because it is the "administrator" settings specified in the connection properties when obtaining an instance of ServiceClientFactory. If I wanted to obtain a list of tasks for user "greg", for example, is there a way I can do this without having to specify the settings for "greg" in the connection properties? I tried to invoke the setUserId() method of the TaskFilter interface but no tasks are returned for user "greg" in that scenario. The aforesaid user has 3 tasks assigned to him. If I specify the user name and password for "greg" in connection settings, I am able to retrieve his list of tasks successfully. However, this is undesirable because I want to be able to retrieve a list of tasks for any user of my choice, by passing a parameter. Is that possible? Code follows:
