Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version 8.2 1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When creating a filter in P6 Professional, after adding the project parameter in a filter and selecting the option to load a project list, P6 Professional takes a long time to load the list, in some cases up to eight minutes.  In addition, once the project list is displayed, typing a character in the search field will cause P6 Professional to also become unresponsive for a long period, including each additional entry of a character in the search field. 


1. Login to P6 Pro client as admin superuser
2. Open any project
3. Go to Activity view
4. Create a new filter
5. Select Project parameter, then select … under Value to list Project (this will take a long time for P6 to response with the ‘Select Project’ window) – some instances over 8 minutes
6. Type in a character in Search (this will cause P6 to be unresponsive again for a long period), every time when typing new character in Search P6 will always be unresponsive for a long period

It took over long time for P6 to display the screen below when select the Project value, ans alos when typed a in Search.
