Project Planning Console Error - "Permission denied to perform the action" when trying to indent a Project task



Issue Summary

The Project Planning Console error below shows when trying to indent a Project Task:
Permission denied to perform the action


Most Probable Cause

This is a security constraint issue. Debugging Security ACLs is the best approach to determine the cause.
The issue can be due to the Parent Field configured as read only for Project Tasks:
The write ACL /  can also be blocking users with the it_project_role from editing or indenting the Parent of the Project Task.



Solution Proposed

  1. Disable or customize the ACL mentioned above.
  2. Create a dictionary-override to make the parent field read-only false on the [pm_project_task] table.
