Unable to see time periods in Create Time Sheet pageOpen in a New Window


We are trying to enable Time Management module. For this we have added below parameters in server.conf parameters.

But even after restarting the server ( and running updateHtml script), we are unable to see the time periods in Time Period drop down.
Please find the screenshot for the issue.

Can anyone please help me what might be the issue. Is there any other setting that we need to do to display time periods in front end.

 Below are the parameters added in server.conf file.

Issue with execution of PPM reportOpen in a New Window


We have developed report in PPM which is doing execution of one database procedure and we observed that it is taking long time to execute that query.
So while running the report, we have deleted respective report from the front end screen in order to stop the execution. But we observed that it is still executing in database.
It should not execute once we delete report from front end.

Can anyone please help me what might be the issue.

Best Regards,

I am having the following Issue.

In HP-PPM we created a new form by adding two fields to the existing form. Now when the Users are raising the request using that form, intermittently it is going to one step in the workflow which otherwise it should skip.

For Example

Some requests are going for the Approval of System Admin at one step which should not happen. This issue is occuring with 3 out of 10 requests.

Kindly suggest how to resolve this Issue

Is there any impact to people allocated in a staffing profile whose resource pool has changedOpen in a New Window

Hello All,

My Client Organization is going to change the resource structure and would like to understand impact on the resource pool changes.

Could you please let us know is there any impact to people allocated in a staffing profile whose resource pool has changed.

For ex, if one resource allocated in staffing profile until december 2017, if the user's resource pool has been changed in May 2017,  Is there any impact to existing allocations.

Do we need to resend the resource requests to new resource pools.

Best Regards,

PPM task automation?Open in a New Window

We are using HP PPM software to ensure process conformance and were interested in exploring how HP PPM could be used as an integrated part of the content author workflow inside of the website our webteam is building. The website is built using Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). Basically, the question is whether a PPM task could be automated outside of PPM. Or more specifically: 

  • Is it possible to automatically create a new ticket outside of PPM?
  • Is it possible to add a reference to an existing ticket outside of PPM?

(The docs discuss integration with Microsoft Project, but that seems more like data sync/integration than any task automation.)
