    Automatically Create Project Schedules with Autoschedule

     

    Resource Constraints
    Specifies if you want Autoschedule to consider resource availability when scheduling the project.
    Default: Selected

    Note: If you clear the check box, Autoschedule treats resources as if they have unlimited availability. Each task is scheduled against the total availability for the resource, but not against the remaining availability for the resource which takes other task assignments into consideration. This results in the shortest possible schedule, but it can also cause over-commitment of resources.

    Hi Cira!

     

    I checked and it doesn't seem possible to update that at the moment. Sorry for the late reply.

     

    If you go to Administration > Reports and Jobs > [Autoschedule Job] > Parameters on the tab list, you'll see all of the parameters that are available when the job is scheduled. 

     

    We see that the in the 'Default' column, that the parameter 'Resource Constraints' is checked on, but the option is grayed out so it looks like it can't be changed. 

     

    You might be able to raise an enhancement for the ability to update the defaults. Hope that helped

    Hi Cira,

     

    I could change the default value for Resource Constraints to 'Cleared' by using xog.

     

    I xogout [ Autoschedule Project ] job definition by using xog with [cmn_sch_job_definitions_read.xml] like as followings.

     

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_read.xsd">

    <Header version="8.0" action="read" objectType="contentPack" externalSource="NIKU">
    <!-- you change the order by simply swap 1 and 2 number in the name attribute -->
    <args contentType="job_definition" name="order_by_1" value="job_code"/>
    <!--args name="order_by_2" value="executable"/-->
    <!--args name="order_by_3" value="jobType"/-->
    </Header>

    <JobQuery>
    <Filter name="code" criteria="EQUALS">autosched_project</Filter>
    </JobQuery>

    </NikuDataBus>

     

    I changed [defaultValue] of parameter tag for [constraints] in xogout xml from "1" to "0" like as followings.

     

    ....

    <parameter code="constraints" dataType="boolean" defaultValue="0" order="6" readOnly="false" required="false" widgetType="checkbox"> .....

     

    After xogin, default value for Resource Constraints to 'Cleared'.

     

     

    Regards,

    Shoichi
