Location OBS attachment not made when creating from Templates

  • 1.  Location OBS attachment not made when creating from Templates

    Posted 10-29-2018 02:29 PM

    Story:  When creating projects from templates, where the template has both a department and location assigned, expect

     

    • new project will have Department and Location fields filled in, copied from template
    • new project will be attached to both the Department OBS and the Location OBS

     

    Actual results are:

     

    • new project has Department and Location fields filled in, copied from template
    • new project IS attached to the Department OBS
    • new project IS NOT attached to the Location OBS

     

    Workaround:  If user navigates to Project \Properties\Financials, removes Location value, hits 'Save,' then selects same Location value and hits 'Save,' then project is attached to Location OBS.

     

    On 15.2.  And suggestions?  Known defect?

    The Location OBS field is a special, system-restricted financial field and has some inherent limitations.  This is a parameterized lookup that is dependent on the Department OBS Unit.  It is also not treated in the same manner as the Department OBS Unit so it does not react to some behaviors that are allowed for the Department.

    Therefore, the application is working as expected with the current limitations for this specific field.
