Documentation/best practices on saving a Microsoft Project (MSP) project schedule that is saved locally on the workstation (without affecting the interface and the mpplookup location)
This article covers how you can prevent issues from occurring in working / saving with the Clarity/MSP Interface / Integration
Release : All Supported Releases
Component : CLARITY MICROSOFT PROJECT (MSP)
IMPORTANT: If you are using federated single sign-on (SSO), you must have an open Clarity browser session. This browser session must be in the environment to which you are trying to connect, which is defined in the CA PPM Host field. (This is referenced in tech docs at: MSP: Install and Configure the Microsoft Project Interface)
Use Save and Save As in Microsoft Project (Not the Save/Save As within the CA PPM Integration tab) to save the file locally.
If you exit Microsoft Project without saving the project locally, you will be asked to save the project.
If you do, the project is saved locally but it is not saved back to Clarity
Review other best practices, particularly around copy and pasting of tasks if on a version of the MSP Interface prior to 15.7.1 to avoid project data or project opening issues later on:
