Error: " Cannot save the work item template on the server." when trying to create WI template

When trying to create a WI template we get the error mentioned above. Permissions are OK (i.e. the user has "Modify a Project Area" rights.

Note that the project area re-uses the process of another project area, nothing is overwritten. I tried to create a WI template in the supplier of the process (wit h a user having the same role there) and it worked:

Any idea?

 Hi Yvo and Eric,


I'm curious if you know the extent of the issues that might arise if you forget to keep <project-configuration> </project-configuration> in the process template when sharing from a master.

Please keep in mind that I found this forum topic because I did just this and now I'm curious to better understand what other unintended issues may have come into play if I hadn't found this.

Thanks!

Hello Yvo,
not easy to tell you what could be wrong here.
I would need to check on various settings like:
- Project Areas inheritance
- user / role permissions in both PAs
- check if Work Item Template is "finalized" in the shared PA

Thanks.
Eric.

Hello Eric,

thanks for your answer. We found the reason in the meantime:

The project area consuming the other process had the following configuration source:

...
<process-specification xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.process">
</process-specification>

where it should have been

...
<process-specification xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.process">
    <project-configuration>
    </project-configuration>
</process-specification>

If I remember correctly, we removed an overwrite of the process once and obviously deleted a little to much.
