Sample Provider Fields Missing From Convert from Source to Gateway Step When Synchronizing Sample to P6 Synchronization (Doc ID 2087933.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 11, 2016

Applies to:

Primavera Gateway - Version 14.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On Primavera Gateway after a Sample to P6 synchronization it has been noticed that the step [Convert from Source to Gateway format] for the field mapping type [Create] seems to not function properly.
Some fields, such as ActualUnits and PlannedUnits, are available in the step [Load from Source], but are lost in the [Convert from Source to Gateway format] step.
This behavior does not appear when using the field mapping Applied For type [Update] or [Both].

Normally all the fields, such as ActualUnits and PlannedUnits, should be available in the step [Load from Source], and also in the [Convert from Source to Gateway format] step.
This behavior should be the identical with the case in which the field mapping Applied For type [Update] or [Both].

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. In Primavera Gateway create a Business Flow from Sample to P6
  2. Select only ResourceAssignment with default field mapping [Assignment Mapping]
  3. Choose in the column [Applied For] for the option [Create]
  4. Run this Business Flow
  5. Analyze the monitoring results
  6. Modify the Sample XML and change the ElementId of the Project in the xml to mock creating a new project
  7. Run steps 1-6
  8. Notice that certain fields are available in the Load from Source step, but not in the [Convert from Source to Gateway format] step.
