Issue:

Process auto start upon condition based on "% complete" attribute is not working 

Process will not work in any stage if we have %complete attribute in conditions :pre-condition, post condition

 

Example:

 

1. Create a process based on project 

2. in Start options: select Auto start: Update 

3. Set condition as "Project % Complete = 20" 

4. Connect start to finish 

5. Validate and activate process 

6. Create a project and update % complete ==20

Environment:
All CA PPM Versions.
Cause:

The field is a percent field so the values are stored as a percentage and need to be compared as such. 

 

Resolution:

The expression is: 

 

project.percent_complete == .2 

 

It is displayed as: 

 

Evaluated Expression( Project % Complete = 0.2 )
