Issue/Introduction

What jobs are required to display per period metrics (TSV / Time Scale) data in the Financials Module / Cost Plans in the Modern User Experience (MUX)

Example: If you update per period metrics ETCs (using group by) in Assignments, then go to the Financial Plans and select Populate from Assignments, does the data populate automatically? Is the new Time Slicing Group by job required?

Environment

Release : 15.9.1

Component : CA PPM TIME SLICING

Resolution

No jobs are required to be run for data to populate, with the exception noted below. 

Exception for non GCP environments on 15.9.1 base:

The Time Slicing job is required to run to allow data to show in existing cost plans due to issue Financials Module requires Time slicing job to run in order to Update Plan Details. Note: The Time Slicing Group by Job does not need to run. After updating assignments per period metrics (such as ETCs), to get cost plan data to update using the populate from assignments method:

  • For existing cost plans, the time slicing job has to be run, and then you can populate from assignments
  • For new cost plans, no job is required to run, the data populates when I create my cost plan populating from assignments.
