Updating Financial Summary with Text User data using Web service

by on ‎04-11-2013 07:18 AM


Financial Summary user data having Text field - If the text field contain any special character then Web service operation fails


The user data parameter and Visible parameter values are different if it contains any special character. PPM sets the hidden parameter value with the HTML syntax. For Example if Visible user data has value "&", then PPM repalce this value in parameter and set it as "&" (with the HTML syntax).


As a result of this there is a mis-match between Parameter and Visibale parameter value. Due to this PPM web service operations for Financial Summary fails.


This issue is not yet fixed in the PPM latest release, so might need to follow below solution.



Solution -


Prior to calling the web service, run an update SQL to update the parameter value with the one of Visible paramter value. This will make both the paramters having same values.


As a result web service operations will run sucessfully.
