Upgraded CA PPM 15.2 to 15.4 and found that the Tabs on the Project Properties page are different.

Some Tabs had previously been hidden, and are now showing again.

The default portlet page used is "Project Default Layout". 

Notice how the tabs “Financial Plans”, “Chargebacks” and “Hierarchy” have appeared after the upgrade. 

The following screenshots are taken from a client system where there were changes made to the Project Default Layout to change the Tabs that are displayed.

Properties, Team, Tasks, Risks/Issues/Changes, Audit Trail

This is a side effect of upgrading CA PPM 15.2 to CA PPM 15.4, when PMO Accelerator is in use.

The default Tabs - and many other aspects - may reset, and you will need to revert them to your preferred format.

"The 'System: Clarity content' addin is installed by default. This includes updated versions of the processes, queries, portlets, groups, jobs, menu items, and pages listed on the Items tab. Most of these will install by default or have a Status as 'Upgrade Ready'. If they are 'Upgrade Ready', if and when you decide to install them, with the 'Install' button at the bottom of the page. If there is any customizations done to that component in your system, it will be overwritten with the out of the box configuration."

Alternatively, please create a Custom Portlet for your users, which will not be affected by the upgrade.
How do I hide the 'Financial Plan', 'Hierarchy' or 'Processes' tab on the Project object?
