Issue:

When auto-scheduling a project via OWB, on some projects we get the following error:

com.niku.sse.exceptions.SEInvalidDateException
IDR_DATE_ERROR_IN_AUTOSCHEDULE:
IDR_DATE_ERROR_IN_AUTOSCHEDULE  

 

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Create a project and add a team member
2. Create a task and assign the team member to it.
3. Open the calendar of the resource assigned to the task
4. Set the task start date as a holiday for that resource
5. Set the task as locked from scheduling
6. Open the project in OWB and edit the 'Autoschedule' option
7. Only tick 'Schedule Assignments on Locked Tasks'
8. Click 'OK'


Expected Results: For the task to autoschedule successfully

Actual Results: You receive the following error:

com.niku.sse.exceptions.SEInvalidDateException
IDR_DATE_ERROR_IN_AUTOSCHEDULE:
IDR_DATE_ERROR_IN_AUTOSCHEDULE

Environment:
CA PPM 14.4, 15.1, 15.2 and 15.3
Cause:

This is caused by DE36948

 

Resolution:

This has now been fixed in CA PPM v15.4

Workaround on prior releases:

Change any task/milestone locked for scheduling to a workday. The cause of the issue is that the scheduled locked tasks/milestones were set on vacation days.
