Task 2: Creating Time Sheets on the TEST Instance to Verify Correct Operation

Using the same test.xml files as in Task 1: Testing .xml Files on a TEST Instance Without Creating Time Sheets, import the test data and create PPM time sheets on the TEST instance, as follows:

  1. Run the script on the TEST instance without using test mode. See Running the Time Sheet Data Importer Script.

  2. Even though source .xml files caused no errors when you ran the script in test mode, errors can occur when you run without test mode and attempt to actually create time sheets. When the script completes, review and correct all errors as step 4 in Task 1 in and step 5 in Task 1 and rerun the script until it moves all of the .xml files to the SUCCESS subdirectory and creates corresponding time sheets.

  3. In PPM, search for the new time sheets. Open them and verify that the time sheet lines specified in the .xml files exist and are correct in the time sheets.

  4. Open the project integrated with Time Management and verify that actuals for tasks in the time sheet are not reflected in the project.

  5. Run the kTMPMSync.sh script with the -includeDates argument set to yes and then verify that actuals for tasks in the time sheet are reflected in the project. For information about the kTMPMSync.sh script, see the Project Management Configuration Guide.

  6. Run reports and portlets for Time Management, Project Management, and Resource Management, and verify that they reflect data in the new time sheets.

  7. Cancel the time sheets that were created for test purposes.
