Issue/Introduction

After updating the total assignment ETC via XOG to zero, the ETC by Period time scale is still showing non-zero ETC values. 

What needs to be done to get the ETC on the time scale to reflect the zero total amount? 

Environment

Release : All Releases

Component : CA PPM XML OPEN GATEWAY (XOG)

Resolution

The ETC amounts on the ETC by Period time scale represent internal ETC slices.

Once the total ETC amount is updated to zero using XOG, the ETC on the time scale will update the next time that the Time Slicing job runs. 

 

Note: To get the ETC to zero out for a particular period only, a zero ETC segment can be used or the segment can be left out of the curve completely.

For example, both of the below curves would zero out the ETC for the month of October, but leave the 92 hour segment for the remaining months.

<EstCurve><Segment finish="2019-10-31T17:00:00" start="2019-10-01T08:00:00" sum="0.00"/>
<Segment finish="2019-12-30T17:00:00" start="2019-11-01T08:00:00" sum="92.00"/>
</EstCurve>

OR

<EstCurve>
<Segment finish="2019-12-30T17:00:00" start="2019-11-01T08:00:00" sum="92.00"/>
</EstCurve>
