Article ID: 50421


Updated On:


Clarity PPM SaaS Clarity PPM On Premise



We are updating existing projects to replace inactive Project Managers with an active Project Manager. We have activated audit trail for the Project Manager field. The audit record shown on the Project > Audit tab shows a blank Old Value for the inactive resource.

Setup Audit Trail:

  1. Login to Clarity as an administrator

  2. Admin Tool > Studio: Objects > Project Object > Audit Trail

  3. Select and move 'Manager' attribute to 'Audited Attributes'

  4. Click 'Save and Exit' button

    <Please see attached file for image>

    Figure 1

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Resource1 is an active user and is the Project Manager on some Projects

  2. Admin Tool > Resources > Resource1 profile is marked 'Inactive'

    <Please see attached file for image>

    Figure 2

  3. Navigate to this Resource > Instance Rights > click 'Project - Manager (Auto)' access right

    <Please see attached file for image>

    Figure 3

  4. A list of projects will be displayed for this inactive project manager > Click on the name of a project to change the Manager Name

    <Please see attached file for image>

    Figure 4

  5. Click Project Manager 'browse' icon > Select an 'Active' Resource (Resource2) > Click 'Add' button

  6. Click 'Save' button

    <Please see attached file for image>

  7. Navigate to Project > Audit Tab

    <Please see attached file for image>

Expected Results: Old Value = Resource1
Actual Results: Old Value = blank



Reactivate the resource before making the change on the project. The Audit Trail will capture the Old Value correctly and the value will be seen on the Audit Trail even when the Resource is deactivated later.
