Issue/Introduction

SUMMARY: Externally Dependent Tasks Not Prefixing Project Name

STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 

1. Create two Projects with tasks
2. Open one of the Tasks and under the "Properties" tab go to "Dependancies"
3. Create a new Dependency that points to a Task on the other Project. Save.
4. On the Project click the "Tasks" tab, and go to "Gantt".
5. The Gantt view displays the Dependancies as the Task Name.

Expected Results: 

The documentation here:
https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/business-management/clarity-project-and-portfolio-management-ppm-on-premise/15-8/Using-Classic-Clarity-PPM/project-management/project-schedules-in-the-gantt-view/manage-project-task-dependencies-and-relationships.html

States-
"The external project name is prefixed to the externally dependent task name."

Actual Results:

It only displays the Task Name, the Project Name is not prefixed.

 

Environment

Release : 15.7.1, 15.8.0, 15.8.1

Component : CA PPM APPLICATION

Resolution

The Project Name is not actually supposed to be prefixed. This is an error in the documentation.

The documentation has been reviewed, and corrected in 15.8.1 and newer versions to remove these comments.
