Issue:

We had a duplicate Resource OBS feed in our Test Environment, the old one was removed which required it to be removed from the Datamart Settings: Resource OBS Mapping. Unfortunately now I cannot add the new OBS. The screen says "Click New to create a Resource OBS Mapping" but there is no New button visible.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Login as an administrator user
  2. Navigate to Administration, Data Administration: Datamart Settings
  3. Scroll down to the 'Resource Organizational Breakdown Structure Mapping' section
Expected Result: To see a 'New' button
Actual Result: The 'New' button does not appear

Environment:

Applies to all supported PAS environments for specified releases.

Cause:

The 'New' button does not appear because the system does not have at least 1 OBS associated with the Resource Object.  There must be at least 1 OBS associated with the Resource Object, and the Project Object to have the 'New' button appear for mapping purposes.  The OBS does not have to be the same for both Resources and Projects; it could be two different OBS.  

Resolution:

  1. Login as an administrator user
  2. Navigate to Administration, Organization and Access: OBS
  3. Using an existing OBS or creating a new OBS, associate the Resource object 
  4. Navigate back to the Datamart Settings page and map to a specific Resource OBS Unit
