Not able to see OBS Section for Roles

Clarity PPM On Premise


  • I am not able to see OBS Section to update department for roles created in Clarity PPM.
  • Is there a way to assign a department OBS to roles (generic resources)?


Release: All Supported Releases
Component: PPMRSM


  1. Setting up Location or Department OBSs for roles is not possible because Roles are not allowed to book actual financial transactions. 
       2.  However, you can create non financial OBSs for roles. (Make sure your OBS is associated with the Resource object)
       3. Additionally, if you are looking to set up varying rates for the same role on a project, see KB000102286 utilizing the staff obs at the team level for roles.
