MSP Project Save Failed Saving Local project to an existing project in Clarity


Article ID: 100176


Updated On:


Clarity PPM On Premise Clarity PPM SaaS


When attempting to overwrite a local MSP (Microsoft Project) project to an existing project in Clarity in the MSP New Driver, receive a Project Save failed error.

In the app-ca.log, a warning message references "Referenced Project record (UID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) does not exist"

Tip: To get to the app-ca.logs, see the following KB that will walk both On Premise and SaaS customers on steps to retrieve the log: Access the app-ca.log or other Clarity Logs


This is due to the Text3 data for the local project's Project Summary task not matching that of the Clarity project.


Release: All Supported
Component: ODMSP


Ensure the Text3 data for the project summary task for the local project matches that of the project in Clarity. See Link a MSP project to an existing project in Clarity for the steps on how to do this.
