Users Can Create Manual Curves But Cannot Remove Them (Doc ID 2975038.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2023

Applies to:

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


A child WBS level has the Project Security Profile privilege Edit Future Periods, but the parent WBS level does not.
A User who is assigned this Profile can manually update Future Period buckets in Project > Resource Assignments spreadsheet but when trying to change the curve from Manual to a different curve, they receive an error.


You do not have the security privilege required to change an assignment's resource curve when the assignment has a manual resource curve.


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

  1. Login to P6 Pro.
  2. Open a Project.
  3. Go to Project > Resource Assignments.
  4. Add the "Curve" column.
  5. Select a Resource Assignment and notice there is no curve.
  6. Click on the Curve field and notice a curve can be added.
  7. Click on the spreadsheet bucket and notice that this can be edited.
  8. Manually update a Future Period bucket.
  9. Notice that the Curve changes from blank to "Manual".
  10. Click on the Curve field and receive error.
