P6 Web Services Returns Incorrect Value for PlannedValueCost Field or Other Fields Calculated Based on Baseline Data (Doc ID 2534106.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2019

Applies to:

Primavera Web Services - Version 16.2.12.0 and later
Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version 16.2.12.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When retrieving the PlannedValueCost using the P6 Web Services ActivityService, the value randomly changes. While troubleshooting the issue it appears there are some other fields which are calculated based off baseline data that also change randomly. See example below of the fields that change randomly.

NOTE: This issue also seems to cause a performance issue in some cases.

For example:

           <ScheduleVariance>9236.1256423858</ScheduleVariance>          
           <ScheduleVarianceIndex>0.016853448275862007</ScheduleVarianceIndex>          
           <ScheduleVarianceIndexLaborUnits>0.016853448275862166</ScheduleVarianceIndexLaborUnits>          
           <ScheduleVarianceLaborUnits>92.5683635243895</ScheduleVarianceLaborUnits>


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Setup a SoapUI ActivityService Request
2. Run the request continuously and the PlannedValueCost will randomly change from the correct value to an incorrect value and then back.
