New Features:

Availability of a Connection Manager (multi-client capability) for admins:
Option for admins to export and import the configurations used in proimporter via TemplateFile.
Admins can import TemplateFiles to different proimporter versions. This simplifies the configuration of connections (via Web Services and API).
Connections can be added, deleted and edited in the Connection Settings. Import and export of TemplateFiles is also possible here.

With help of the Connection Manager, P6 connections can be configured either via API or via Web Services.

Login mask for proimporter user

The proimporter user then sees in the login mask which configurations are available to him and can log in accordingly. The login is done as before by entering the Oracle Primavera P6 user with password. A field with the connection selection ("Config") has been added to the login mask.

 

The login mask for the user via API additionally includes
the connection selection ("Config") and P6 instance:

Warning message when import action changes from "Create" to "Update" (Project ID):
A warning message appears when the import action of a project changes from "Create" to "Update" after changing the project ID. This additional safety mechanism prevents an unintentional update and overwriting of already existing projects and ensures the uniqueness of the project ID during import.
The warning message also appears if an attempt is made to update a project to a specific EPS node without the corresponding access rights.

Quick fixes:

Display of used Quick Fixes in the ImportLog:

All Quick Fixes used during the import of a project are documented in the ImportLog under the tab "Used Quick Fixes" an can be saved for documentation.

Validation function:

Extension of the validation check "Cost Account Names":

If Cost Account Names are too long or duplicates are identified during the Validation Check, a Quick Fix für Cost Account Names and Ids is performed to ensure the uniqueness of names and IDs.

Bug fixes:

Bug fix: Improvement of import action for Cost Account child elements:

If the import action "Ignore" is set for Cost Accounts, all child elements are also set to "Ignore".
