The Cost Plans/Budget Plans have 4 distinct views: Flat View, Self View, Aggregated View and Billing Currency View. The configuration for these views affects both Cost Plans and Budget Plans. This issue does not affect the Aggregated View (it works as expected and displays the defined [virtual] TSV properties configuration).
If the end-user navigates to [--Actions--] Configure and modifies the configuration for the [virtual] TSV attribute, the configuration is saved as expected. However the actual configuration that is displayed on the page is influenced by the last saved configuration from another view. For Example, if you create a configuration for the Flat View, and save the configuration, the View will appear as expected. Then subsequently you modify the configuration for the Self View or the Billing Currency View, the configuration is saved, but now all 3 views show the same Time Scale configuration (the labels are shown correctly). When you examine the configuration for each of the 3 views they are distinctly different and saved as expected. It is important for the end-user to see the distinct, saved configurations for each of the views as these views serve different purposes. Only the Aggregated View is working as expected and is not affected by the last saved configuration from any of the other views. When configuring the [virtual] TSV attributes on the views from Studio, similar behavior occurs ; all 3 views are displayed the same although you can see the properties of the attribute are configured differently.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Result: Specific TSV configurations for the Flat View, Self View, and Billing Currency View should appear as defined
Actual Result: Flat View, Self View and Billing Currency Views are displaying the Time Scale configuration from the last saved configuration from another view
The following, identified workarounds will not solve the problem of having saved, distinct configurations between each of the three views. These workarounds are identified to help end-users change settings to switch between configurations and the changes are temporary or impact the other views.
After changing to a different view (Flat, Self or Billing) and the view is not as expected, navigate to [--Actions--] Configure, Fields. Open the properties for the [virtual] TSV attribute and click 'Save' button. The view will now have the properties applied to the view. This workaround will impact the other views due to the reported behavior -- all three views will display the 'last saved configuration'. Alternatively, users can use 'session' Time Scaled View configurations to switch between configurations from [--Actions--] Time Scale View.
This issue has been documented as CLRT-57806 and is assigned to development for review. If you are experiencing this problem and the workaround above does not significantly help, please contact CA Clarity Support.
