Same project in multiple programs

Hi All,

Can we add same project in multiple programs.

I have observed that one project can be part of multiple programs.However, the "Associated Programs" field in project details page is showing only one program which we associated first.

How can we change the "Associated Programs" field data when we change the project to new program.

Can anyone please let me know is it by PPM design. 

Best Regards,

Shravan

Re: Same project in multiple programs

Hello

 

After the projects are added to multiple programs, you may need to go back to Project detaisl page and select the programs manually.

Else, you may automate through a DB trigger/ report to sync the programs in the project details whenever the project is added to any program. And execute a one time update to populate the same for existing mappings.

Hi Shravan,

This issue seems to be fixed in 9.4. 

If you are on lower version, then probably a DB script will help you.  If you add a 'Program Associations' portlet on your project overview page, it will show you the updated programs... but the 'Associated Programs' field on the project details doesnt really update and that is why you will need to run DB scripts. 

I had faced similar issue and raised a case with HPE.. 

This is what they had provided:

================================================================================

update KNTA_PARAM_SET_FIELDS_NLS set PARAMETER_TABLE_NAME=null,PARAMETER_VALUE_COL_NAME=null,PARAMETER_VIS_VALUE_COL_NAME=null where VALIDATION_ID=3955 and PARAMETER_TABLE_NAME='KCRT_FG_PFM_PROJECT';

 update KCRT_FG_PFM_PROJECT set PRJ_PROGRAM_ID=null,PRJ_PROGRAM_NAME=null;

 commit;

================================================================================

Please take backup of the tables first and try out in Dev or Test instance..

Else, if you need a official word, then please raise it with HPE. 

 

 

Cheers,

Ajay
