I am unable to XOG a cost plan with a detail row that points to an specific department.
The error I get is: Missing or invalid value for Grouping Attribute
I am able to XOG read an existing Clarity cost plan, but unable to XOG write even when using the output of the XOG read action.


Access rights were missing to the user used for XOG activities

1. The department ID specified is correct. XOG is case sensitive.
