Issue:

We would like to change the Resource ID but it does not appear to be editable. Why?

 

Cause:

Once a Resource has become financially-enabled, the Resource ID field becomes un-editable or read-only.
The Resource ID cannot be changed on Resources that have had the 4 required fields populated
-Financial Department
-Financial Location
-Transaction Class
-Resource Class

So when a Clarity resource's financial properties are set at least once, the resource ID will become read-only
and the Home > Resource > Financial > "Financially Active" flag being set or not set will have no effect on the resource ID becoming editable, but rather the above 4 required fields being set.

Resolution:

If the application does not allow a change due to the current properties on the resource (being financially enabled), the administrator can deactivate the existing resource and create a new resource with the desired ID value. The existing resource cannot be deleted.
