Summary: Project TASKS Module Timeline View Not Loading. Task picklists don't work after the 'Tasks' table widget is added to STATUS Module. 

Steps Reproduce:

  1. Configure the Project Blueprint to have the STATUS Module to be the first tab 
  2. Add the 'Tasks' table widget to the Status Report layout 
  3. Create a new project from the Project Grid
  4. After creation you should be taken to the STATUS Module 
  5. Navigate to the new project's TASKS Module, Timeline View

Expected Results: The view should load and picklists should work as expected. 

Actual Results: The user cannot create and save new picklists. Toast error message = Could not save the view.  

The browser developer tools (Preview,Payload) and the app-ca.log file shows error messages. 

  1. The browser developer tools (Preview,Payload) error shows: 
    • {"resourceId":null,"httpStatus":"500","errorMessage":"API-1019 : Could not process the request due to internal error.","errorCode":"api.internalError"}

  2. The app-ca.log shows the following error:

Release: 16.0.1, 16.0.2 


DE64612, Fixed in 16.0.3


  1. Remove the 'Tasks' Table Widget from the Status Report configuration
  2. Correct the table ODF_PICKLIST_CONTEXTS where the object_code column is null:
    • Run query:  select * from odf_picklist_contexts where code like '%::projects::tasks' and object_code is null  
    • Review the affected projects to ensure correction is done appropriately
    • Run the below query to correct: 
      update odf_picklist_contexts set object_code = 'task' where code like '%::projects::tasks' and object_code is null; 
    • For a specific project only (replace code accordingly):  
      update odf_picklist_contexts set object_code = 'task' where code = '5xxxxx::projects::tasks' and object_code is null; 


Per Engineering DE64612 is fixed in Clarity 16.0.3 (workaround is temporary and will likely run into issue again until Clarity is upgrade).
