Introduction:
By design, the Resource OBS Type fields on Resource Management Reports will only show OBS’s associated to the Resource object. To populate Resource OBS as a parameter (input control) on Resource Management Reports, the OBS needs to be associated to the Resource object. The definition for parameter "Resource OBS Type" is as follows: The Resource OBS Type is a cascading parameter and determines which units are listed in the Resource OBS Unit parameter. This parameter is not used to control which resources display in the report.
