[Awkward Issue] Idea End Period till December 2017 but Staffing Profile periods end at Dec 2015
Recently, I came across an awkward issue in HP PPM 7.5. The End Period for an Idea was till December 2017. The Idea has been created properly, but the Staffing Profile shows values can be entered upto December 2015.
I checked for the highest generated periods(end_date) in knta_periods and kmtg_periods and they were 1/3/2021 and 21/31/2017 respectively. So, as per there should be no issue.
But, There are no periods in staffing profile available after Dec 2015.

until PPM 9.12 PPM works as follows: The Forecast and Actual Details section displays a table with the forecast and actual costs of the entity, on a monthly or quarterly basis, over a time range from two years ago to five years from now (this is quoted from the documentation of PPM 8, but it applies to older versions such as PPM 7.5, it was not documented in 7.5).
starting PPM 9.12: Prior to version 9.12, the data (where present) was displayed over a fixed time range from up to two fiscal years ago to up to five fiscal years in the future. Financial summaries also displayed graphical data for one selected fiscal year in that range. In version 9.12, administrators can configure the earliest and latest fiscal years of data to display, up to 20 years ago and up to 20 years in the future, by using the Administration Console to specify the new server.conf parameters NUMBER_OF_PAST_YEARS_TO_SHOW_ON_FINANCIAL_SUMMARY and NUMBER_OF_FUTURE_YEARS_TO_SHOW_ON_FINANCIAL_SUMMARY. The valid values range from 0 to 20, and the defaults are 2 and 5 for consistency with the previous design. The tables display data over the range of years calculated from the values specified in the parameters.
