Post SP1 installation in Project Server 2010, we found the issue with the project custom fields behavior...is it really an issue? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    We have few project level custom fields in our instance. Recently we installed the SP1 in our project server and seems everything works as expected except the project level custom fields behavior.

    Earlier all our custom fields were created with the behavior "Not required". Post SP1 installation, we could see that, the behavior is changed to "Work flow - controlled". Is this the intended behavior?

    The issue what we are facing due to this is that, when we create a new project template and create the projects with this newly created templates, we are UNABLE to update the custom field information through PSI. So we needed to change their behavior back to original manually and then it started working fine.

    Do any one of you have any idea?

  • Hi Rajasekhar--

    I havn't seen or atleat not aware on the Custom fields behavior changes post SP1. I have recently worked with a customer for SP1 install but didn't see the same.

    Martin has posted somthing on this but the environment was upgraded & BCM was unchecked.

    Do you have other environments which is not upgraded to SP1 & try to compare ?

  • Hi Amit,

    Thanks for the response. I am sure, this behavior occurs in any of the environment. Right now, we have only one Prod and one QA instance with us. Probably I will check this behavior again, once we get the Dev instance :) 

    FYI: We have NOT migrated any of the previous version project server DBs in to the later versions. So above post may not really relevant in my case.
