Hi all,

I have read the documentation (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/SoftwareAddon) about the API and I know how to use it. But I can't find an URL which returns me the list of all BOINC projects and ther url (to the get_project_config.php). Hope there exists one!

I may have understood you wrong, but in the mean time, the manual lists are at:
From front page (Choose projects) http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php
From BOINC User Wiki http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Project_list

Do you mean the list that the BOINC Project wizard reads?
boinccmd --get_project_config

Yes, like http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php but I expect a result like all other web rpc calls as xml for automatisation.

This list: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/project_list.php is what the Manager and Client use to display a subset of all projects to the user.

There is no list of ALL BOINC projects as xml because nobody compiled something like that and probably nobody will.

ok, and where do the projects get there IDs? I have seen in the user.gz and host.gz that there are id's for the projects the user/host are participating:

Here you can see it:
http://boinc.netsoft-online.com/get_user.php?cpid=941025eeb95d0492e94ca15007c2df40

<project>
  <name>SETI@home</name>
  <project_id>19</project_id>


If there is no central project managment, how are the ID's generated?

If you mean that project_id there that must something the stats site has invented for themselves.

There really is no central authority. Anyone can start a BOINC project and announce it to the public, or keep it private, or even make it publicly accessible without announcing it. All that can be done without applying for an ID number.
