Duplicate Project ID In P6 Web When Restoring A Baseline Using P6 Web Services (Doc ID 2529958.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2019

Applies to:

Primavera Web Services - Version 17.12.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On P6 EPPM 17.12.8.0, when Restoring a Baseline using P6 Web Services to restore a baseline from a project, using the baseline service, when the baseline is restored as a separate project in P6, P6 Web UI shows duplicate project IDs (its Id changes and becomes same as project Id)

Example:
There is a project named "Proj A" with a baseline "Proj A - B1". When we restore "Proj A - B1" as project, in P6 web it displays the project Id as "Proj A" instead of "Proj A - B1" and hence looks duplicate but it is actually NOT a duplicate ID.

Additional details:

  1. The project Id already exists and its baseline is restored as a project.

  2. The project Ids are actually different after the baseline restoration. This was confirmed by following these steps:
    a. reading the restored baseline project Id via a webservice.
    b. reading the proj_short_name field in DB.
    c. checked the same project Ids via P6 client.

  3. The duplicate Ids are visible only via P6 web.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
A restored baseline should keep the uniqueness of the Id, and not to be the same as its parent Id in web.

STEPS
-----------------------
   1. Create a project in P6 Web
   2. Save the project as baseline
   3. Restore the baseline
   4. Observe the baseline ID becomes the same with its parent.
