Issue/Introduction

  • We find inconsistency in data in Project->properties->Strategic Outcomes List or other custom sub page / out of the box sub page.
  • Sometimes it happens that there is a duplication of records in the page where the results multiply.
  • Could you please explain us the cause of multiplication of records? 

Cause

This can happen if a process, XOG is triggered that will create the additional instances based on start criteria for the process

Environment

Release : All Supported Releases

Component : CA PPM BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT

Resolution

  • Check for any custom processes or custom jobs that may create additional records, issues related to this would be updated by the process creator.
  • One specific thing to check is the start criteria for the process to see if it's triggering unexpected additional processes based on the start criteria
    • (IE when a project manager updates a project with a change, it may incorrectly kick off the process again)
