Issue/Introduction

It is possible to XOG in a task with assignments and/or actuals as a milestone. Clarity UI does not allow this.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a new project with two tasks that are a year long, assign a resource to both of them.
  2. For one of the tasks, post time so it has actuals.
  3. XOG the project out.
  4. Replace 'milestone="false"' with 'milestone="true"' for the two tasks.
  5. XOG the project back in.

Expected Results: XOG fails with an error because milestones cannot have assignments, actuals or different start/finish dates.

Actual Results: XOG imports the project and the tasks are now 1 year long tasks with assignments and/or actuals.

Cause

This issue has been reported to Engineering as DE60912.

Environment

Release : 15.9.2

Component : CLARITY XML OPEN GATEWAY (XOG)

Resolution

Fixed in Clarity 15.9.3.

The new functionality will simply uncheck the "isMilestone" flag but leave the task schedule alone if the task is assigned if the request is coming in from XOG.
