The Status attribute on the Project Object is associated with a System Restricted lookup: Investment  Object State. The lookup clearly states in the value descriptions that some of the options are only applicable to Ideas. However, those options are showing as available in the Modern / New User Experience (UX) when the Status field is added to a Blueprint.  In the Classic View, only status values relevant to the Project object show up in projects. 

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to a project in the new UX
  2. Attempt to change the project Status on either the Project list or the Project Details page

Expected Results: Only valid project statuses are available. 
Actual Results: Project and Idea statuses are both available.

Note: If an Idea specific status is selected, an error is thrown - CMN-0009: Attribute 'Status' has invalid Lookup Value 'n'


This was reviewed as DE53645 and determined to be working as designed. Status is a legacy field supported in Classic Clarity. In the New UX, "Status" has been replaced with the field "Work Status". Status was retained in the New UX for legacy purposes (including projects/ideas in flight from Classic Clarity)


Release : All Supported

Component : Clarity Project Management


Options to hide this field in the New UX:

  • Field Security is available starting in Clarity 15.8 where you can hide the Status field in the New UX or make this field read-only to all users in the Modern UX
  • In versions prior to 15.8, you can remove the Status field from the Blueprints associated with the project or idea.
