PPM Bridge to P6 not compatible with P6 v8.1 - Error 'unexpected wrapper element'

(Doc ID 1321039.1)

Last updated on JULY 17, 2017

Applies to:

Primavera Portfolio Management - Version 7.5 to 8.0 SP2 [Release 7.5 to 8.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When PPM is connected to a P6 v8.1 system (via the PPM Bridge to P6 Add On), the Bridge will show two green checkmarks indicating connectivity to P6. However, all attempted Bridge operations (publish/update/sync/import) fail with an error message similar to below:

Error: Unexpected wrapper element


  • This issue affects all PPM releases up to and including PPM 8.0 SP2 when used with P6 v8.1.
  • This only affects PPM when connected to P6 v8.1 (earlier compatible releases of P6 will not cause this issue).
