Activity durations change when resource and or role assignments are blocked during import. Resource and Role assignments may be blocked from importing due to a) lack of global and project level privileges or b) role and resource assignments DO NOT IMPORT setting was selected.
1. Staffed Role assignment is blocked during import (incoming Resource DOES exist, Role does NOT)
2. Role-only assignment is blocked during import (incoming Role does NOT exist)
3. Resource-only assignment is blocked during import (incoming Resource does NOT exist)
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login as Non-admin and No Global privileges except Import P6 XML
2. Import XML containing Role and Resource assignments
3. Result: In all 3 scenarios mentioned above - :
Role and or Resource assignments do not import (correct behavior), and Activities OD/RD recalculate to default value (incorrect behavior).
