Project Type DB Update

Hi All,

We have done a mass update of the project type settings via the DB.

The update done was to "Tick" the option "Calculate the forecasted labor costs from the staffing profile. " under Financial Management of Cost and Effort Section. The update was successful when we check into the DB however, from the UI although the box is ticked the "Cost Category" field in the "Advanced" section when you add a position is not getting mandated automatically. We have to "save" the project type one at a time for the field to be mandated.

We have tried RunCacheManager but it did not hep.


Is there a way we can force the changes to take effect without saving the project type?
