Allow the management of cost resources in the PWA and their assignment in templates for new projects
Currently cost resources can only be properly used via the Project Professional client. They cannot be assigned in a template for a new project as this crashes the project creation. When using those resources in the PWA you can assign them, but you cannot update, cost, actual cost and remaining cost values as the fields are only editable in Task views and update only the task field but not the assignment fields (different to editing work resources, where updates on task level reflect also to the assignments). Therefore cost resources are currently useless when editing projects only via the PWA
Any news on assignment costs in the CSOM API? Has anyone managed to programmatically modify cost information?
Same issue with Budget and Material resources.

This shouldn't even be a choice because I would consider it a bug that needs to be fixed asap.

Of course it would be beneficial to also improve the CSOM API in the same step to allow programmatically edit cost information
