Error getting while opening project details page in ChromeOpen in a New Window

Hello Team,

While we are trying to open any of the project's "Project Details" tab in Chrome browser, we are getting popup saying that "You must provide a value for the field "Project No:" to complete the validation" and when we press "OK", it is giving errors for all rules where "project No:" is using as "Dependency". And we are not facing this issue in IE browser.

Can anyone please check this issue as soon as possible and help me what could be the problem.

Please find the attached error popup for the same.

And also it looks like we are unable to open PPM project links in "Mac" systems. Is there any limitation where we should not use PPM application in "Mac" systems.

Best Regards,
Shravan

getting request types with RESTful Web ServicesOpen in a New Window

Hello.

I'm using RESTful API to get the enabled request types from a PPM server, so I submit the following REST request:

  • Request: http://<PPM_Server_IP>:<port>/itg/rest/dm/requestTypes
  • HTTP Method: GET

PPM returns only 3 request types: Bug, Enhancement and Generic Request. But on workbench I can see more, such as Project Details, and some others I made, and they're enabled on workbench, in fact, those types can be used by the PPM users to create projects.

Please, does anyone know how to enable request types so that they can be returned using the REST request mentioned?

Thanks,

M.G.

 

 

 

Make Workplan EditableOpen in a New Window

Hi,

customer has a very simple requirement, but I can't figure out how to achieve it. They need the Workplan to be editable by users who are not the Project Manager of the project. For example: stakeholders, or a user specified in a custom field in the request type, etc.

Is there anyway I can make the Workplan editable for someone who is not set as the Project Manager?

 

Thanks,

Antoni

 

Application Server Upgrade from windows 2003 to latest supported versionOpen in a New Window

Resource Roles and Time ReportingOpen in a New Window

Our organization likes to report workers hours based on their roles at the time of reporting their time.  We have set up our users in the Resource Management  with Titles and Roles as either Functional Analysts, Developers, Business Analysts, etc.

My concern is that people change roles in our organization, and thus their Titles and Roles will change.  I cannot see how HP PPM will be associating a user's Role or Title historically, and correctly, with their past time entries.  It seems I will only be able to report any past time periods with only being able to associate their current Title or Role with them, not necessarily their Role when they entered their time in the past..

I can only see that a user's Role or Title is reported with the current entry in the user's table.  Is this correct?

Before we implemented HP PPM Time Management Module, our previous Time Reporting System would capture a user's Role with each Time Sheet Line Detail, allowing us to accurately report time spent, by Role, on our Time reports.  Is this available in the HP PPM Time Management Module?

 

Customizing the standard interfaceOpen in a New Window

Hi guys, I am trying to change the color HPE "green" to something else like bright red. Just changing CSS files does not seem to do the trick. The scripts I have been using for older PPM versions will probably not work at all, this is 9.40. Who has a good approach or even done that with recent versions? Regards Sascha

 

PPM Support for E-Business Suite 12.2 - Oracle Application and Technology ExtensionsOpen in a New Window

Has anyone used Object Migrator 12.2 for EBS 12.2?  From what I can see, the Oracle Application and Technology Extensions have not been modified, and don't appear to take into account the dual file system in the 12.2 architecture.  Also, I haven't installed it yet, but in grepping through the Object Migrator files, I don't see that it does any adop checking, or run vs patch file system checking.

Support sent me an Object Migrator 12.2 Demo document that contained exactly what I was looking for as far as object type, etc., go, but what was in this document does not seem to exist in reality.

Am I missing something?

Hello All,

Greetings!

I have below questions on generating time periods.

2) Script execution stores data in database but to get clarify, if PPM having different servers, do we need to execute script on all machine in cluster or any one of machine is enough? 

Thanks,

Change Demand Management Request form Add a Resource Selection Table ColumnsOpen in a New Window

When I press the Add Resource button in the Resource Section of a Request form, I get a selection list of all our HP PPM Resources.  The selection list consists of a table of users with the columns Full Name, Username, Department, and Email.  This seems to be default behavior.

I would prefer the selection list in the selection table contains the columns Full Name, Username, TItle, and Email. basically replacing Department with Title.

How can I do this?

Attachment shows an image of what i am referring too.

Thanks in advance, Michael A.

Cost Rate is not changing for the Department value in Financial summaryOpen in a New Window

Hi Team,

We need some information regarding the cost factors in PPM.

Actaully we have two departments like Departmment A and Department B with below effective rates from Jan 1, 2017.


Departmment A - Rate 20$
Departmment B - Rate 30$

Now we have assigned Resource1 to Department A for Jan Month FTE of 160 hours. so the total cost is 3200$ which is showing correctly in Resource Forecast under cost section in Project.
But when we changed the Department A to Department B for the same Resource1 then the total cost should be 4800$ for the Same month of JAN, but it is still showing 3200$ in Resource Forecast.

Please let us know when it will be reflect in the Cost section of financial summary if we update the department for the same resource and which scheduler it will be part of it.

Regards,
Praveen.
