The links for Project with Action = Project Budget or Action = Budget Plans or Action = Benefit Plans are not working. The URLs are incorrect.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Administration, Objects, Project.
  2. Go to the Linking tab and create two links:
    • New Link #1
      • Enter name = my_projectbudget
      • Select Action = Project Budget - Latest Revision
      • Object ID = Object Internal ID
      • Revision To Display Object Internal ID
    • New Link #2
      • Enter name = my_budgetplans
      • Select Action = Budget Plans
      • Object ID = Object Internal ID
  3. Go to Views, Project List, Fields 
    • Open Start Date attribute : Select Link = my_projectbudget
    • Open Finish Date attribute : Select Link = my_budgetplans
    • Publish the View
  4. Go to Home, Project List 
    • Find a project that has a cost plan, budget, and benefit plan 
    • Go to the Financial tab, Budget Plans list
      • Note the URL displayed 
    • Open a Budget Plan Detail Tab
      • Note the URL displayed 
  5. Go to Home, Project List. Click the links:
    • Click the Start date link.
      • The following error is generated: Error 501 - Not Implemented. The server does not support the requested feature. Contact your system administrator.
      • Note the URL displayed 
    • Click the Finish date link 
      • The following error is generated Error:Error 401 - Unauthorized. You are not authorized to view the page. If you are sure you have access, try logging in again or contact your system administrator.
      • Note the URL displayed
  6. Notice that the URLs in step 5 are different from the URLs in step 4.

Expected Result: The 'actions' should not be available for configuration.

Actual Result: The 'actions' are showing as available for selection in configuring new links.  When used the URLs are built incorrectly and generates an error message 






Resolved in CA PPM 14.2   
NOTE: The links used in the configuration scenarios are for old functionality no longer in the application.
Therefore, the following 'actions' should not be used in any configurations.  Upon resolution of this issue, these 'actions' will be removed.
Project Budget - Latest Revision
Project Budget - Specific Revision
Project Forecast - Latest Revision
Project Forecast - Specific Revision
If you have any existing user-defined links using these actions, please remove them before you upgrade.
