Issue/Introduction

Steps to Reproduce

1. Log in to new UX

2. Go to Project>>Tasks

3. In column panel, check WBS Sort

4. Click the addition sign 6 times so there are 6 new lines for tasks

5. Go to Excel - type something in three rows - Ex - Test 1, Test 2, Test 3

6. Copy those three lines

7. Go back to the tasks in new UX

8. In the new lines added, paste the lines twice.

Expected Result:

WBS Sort numbers will be unique

 

Actual Result:

Some WBS Sort numbers will duplicate causing an error when opening project with Gantt

 

Environment

Release : 15.6, 15.6.1, 15.7

Component : CA PPM SAAS PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Resolution

Development rejected potential defect due to the behavior change for copy/paste in a future release.  

In the future release, if you copy and paste 3 rows from excel, the expected results is that it should copy and paste the 3 rows into the first task so this would prevent any duplicate WBS Sort IDs.
