We have created a XOG write file to create some cost plans. It seems random, but sometimes the XOG will fail for some projects and not for other projects with an error message indicating we do not have valid fiscal time periods. What could cause this error message?
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Result: All Cost Plan Details are successfully imported.
Actual Result: XOG output file shows the following error message
This is working as designed and caused by the date values entered in the <segment> element not matching the exact start and finish dates of the Fiscal Period defined for the associated Entity. The <segment> element has 'start' and 'finish' attributes that have to match the dates of the fiscal time period with a zero time stamp format (yyyy-mm-ddT00:00:00)
Release: PPM Clarity 15.8 and lower releases
To correct the XOG write file, examine the dates and compare to the dates defined for the associated Entity for that project. If the dates match, check to ensure the fiscal time period is activated for all periods in the date range for the cost plan details.
When you XOG out the Entity to show the Fiscal Time Periods - you will see the output generated with dates (no timestamp)
When you prepare your Cost Plan Write XOG file, the <segment> data should look like this
Therefore, if your <segment> dates are off, and do not match the Fiscal Period Date, then you will get the error message:
For example if your segment has a different finish date such as : Sept. 15, 2015, the XOG output will generate the error message.
<segment finish="2015-09-15T00:00:00" start="2015-09-01T00:00:00" value="2400.0"/>
If your <segment> dates are correct, but the Fiscal Period is inactive, the XOG output will generate the same error message.
