Users are unable to update team member properties when partitions are being used and an active process exists referencing a project aggregate attribute. 



1. Create a Partition Model (ex: Partition Model A), with at least one Partition under it (ex: PPM PartitionA)

2. Add the user to the PPM PartitionA

3. Go to Administration > Objects > Project, and associate the Partition Model A with the Project object, Save and Return

4. Create a new custom subobject of the Project object, Custom Sub ( ID: custom_sub), check the boxes for 'Event Enabled' and 'Copy Enabled'

5. In the custom object created in Step4, create a Number attribute:

   Attribute Name: Actual Cost 

   Attribute ID: actual_cost 

   Partition: PPM PartitionA or System

6. Back on the Project object, create a new Aggregated attribute: 

Name: Total Expense 

ID: total_ex 

Partition: PPM PartitionA or System 

Expression: AGG_Sum(custom_sub.actual_cost)

7. Create a Process 

Name: Test Process 

Objects: Project (in either the System or PPM PartitionA) 

Start Options > Auto- Start 

Start Event: Update 

Start Condition: (project.total_ex != project.total_ex__oldValue) 

Start step directly to Finish (no need to add any actions)

8. Validate and Activate the process

9. Create a new project (or open an existing one)

10. Go to the project team, and add a resource

11. Attempt to make any update to the team member

12. Click on Save 


Expected Result: The change on the Team to be saved. 

Actual Result: The change on teh Team is not saved, and a System Error is thrown. The app-ca log shows an error message similar to the following:
