The app-ca logs contain an error message similar to the following:

ERROR 2015-12-01 11:02:58,403 [http-nio-80-exec-2404] niku.xql2 (clarity:admin:5451025__67732A63-F3A9-4230-9DD8-E182EF21E382:projmgr.projectNew) Internal Processing exception
java.lang.NumberFormatException: Number not completely processed 5001003:5002001

This error occurs if there is a default value for the 'Default Resource OBS Unit' attribute set either on the Project or Investment object.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Go to Administration > Objects > Project (or Investment) > Attributes Tab
2. Search for 'Default Resource OBS Unit' attribute
3. Open the properties for this attribute
4. Click on the binoculars and select a Default for this attribute (Example: ResOBS:Unit1)
5. The value that you have selected will show on the Default field
6. Click on Save
7. Notice that the Default Value now shows as blank
8. Go to Home> Projects
9. Click on the 'New' button to create a new project

Expected Result: The Project Create page comes up and a new project is able to be created. 

Actual Result: The Project Create page does not load. A new page does come up, but only contains a System Error with the Save, Save and Return, and Return buttons underneath it.


Applies to all supported PAS environments for specified releases.


Caused by CLRT-79403


This has been resolved in 14.4 and later releases.


To resolve the issue once encountered, go to Administration>Objects>Project(or Investment)>Attributes>'Default Resource OBS Unit'>Properties and click on the gray X to clear the default. Please know that the default will show blank in the UI, but a default value for this attribute does exist in the odf_default_overrides table in the database. The Clarity cache may need to be flushed after making this change as well. 

To workaround setting a default value, set the default on the project after it is created. 


Release: ESPCLA99000-14.3-Clarity-Extended Support Plus
