When attempting to synchronize a project between Agile and Clarity, receiving the following Warning in Clarity:
There was a problem syncing tasks for the CA PPM project:<projectname>projmgr.TASK_DATES_INVALID_SEQUENCE
PRJ-07237: Invalid date sequence. Finish date cannot precede start date.
Release : All Supported Releases
Component : CA PPM SAAS RALLY
This issue can happen if there are actuals on the related task in Clarity with no ETCs left which locks the Finish date in Clarity. This then prevents the date from being updated from Rally
Power Filter Text:
task.prestsum == 0 && ( task.prstatus != lookup("prTaskStatus", "2") ) && task.has_subtasks == 0 && task.has_assignments == 1 && like( task.prexternalid, "F*" )
2. Edit one assignment on each task returned by the filter by giving the selected assignment an ETC of 0.01
3. Save the change.
4. This will ‘unlock’ the task’s Finish Date
5. Run the Synchronize Agile Central job for the project.
See Examples for Populating Task Dates in Classic PPM in TechDocs for more information on task date syncing
