IT Management Suite


After upgrading from CMS (Client Management Suite) 7.6 HF7 (Hot Fix) to 8.0 observed that when you try to resize any columns in a task, the SMP (Symantec Management Platform) console will throw an error.
The issue happens when you try to resize the description or start time columns etc.... 

Note: We found that if you are logged into the SMP as the service ID (AppID) you can resize them with no issue but if you login as user that is a Symantec admin it
still causes the issue. If you login as any other user besides the service ID (AppID), the issue will replicate.
