  1. Go to Objects -> Project -> Attributes
  2. Look for the field "Project Template" with ID OBJ_METHODOLOGY
  3. The attribute is checked for "Include in the Data Warehouse" and it is also grayed out.


The issue is that the lookup query PMO Project Templates is not having a last_updated_date and is not suitable for the Data Warehouse. This lookup is not meant to be included this is why it's restricted. For you, it was probably enabled previously, on the 14.x versions where we hadn't yet set those attributes to restricted to avoid DWH issues.


Release : 15.9



Note: This solution is only valid for the OOTB field OBJ_METHODOLOGY.  This is an OOTB attribute that is NOT meant to be in Data Warehouse and is selected and greyed out. This solution is NOT VALID for custom attributes.

  1. Run the below query (This will reset the attribute to be editable

    update odf_custom_attributes

    set is_system =0

    where object_name ='project'

    and internal_name ='obj_methodology'

    ---1 row will be updated

  2. Restart services
  3. In Clarity, uncheck the obj_methodology attribute on the Project object from the Data Warehouse

  4. Save

  5. Run the Load Data Warehouse job - Full Load

  6. Once done, run the query to set the attribute back to System:

    update odf_custom_attributes

    set is_system =1

    where object_name ='project'

    and internal_name ='obj_methodology'


  7.  Restart services again
