Once the link between the Project Management and Contract Manager
modules is established, you can then create a link from your project to
an Contract Manager project to enable users to import and view
Contract Manager data in the Project Management module. If you are
connecting to Contract Manager version 9.x or higher, creating a link
between your project and a Contract Manager project additionally
enables users to view Contract Manager data in Project Workspace
portlets in P6 Web Access. Connecting to version 9.x or higher also
enables users to launch Contract Manager from P6 Web Access.

Link to a Contract Manager Project Choose Enterprise, Projects,
then display project details. Select the project to which you want to link
a Contract Manager project. If the Contract Manager tab is not
displayed, right click on a tab at the bottom (for example, General) to
display the Project Details dialog box, and move Contract Manager into
the Display Tabs section. On the Contract Manager tab, mark the 'Allow
this project to link with a Contract Manager Project' checkbox. Click the
browse button (in version 9.5 and above) to the right of the Group
Name:Project Name field to choose the Contract Manager project to
which you want to link your project.

If you are connecting to Contract Manager version 8.5
(Expedition), the Group Name and Project Name appear as
separate fields, as shown in the following image. Type the
name of the Contract Manager database and project you
want to link to your project.

To link your project to a Contract Manager project, you must
have the project privilege, Edit Contract Manager Link.

Choose whether users are
prompted for a user login
and password when
retrieving Contract Manager
data. If you choose for users
to log in without being
prompted, type a login name
and password.

Linking the Project Management and Contract Manager Modules 533

Primavera - Project Management

If an identical username and password do not already exist in both
Contract Manager and the Project Management module, you will be
prompted to enter the Contract Manager Name and Password. If an
identical username and password already exist in both Contract
Manager and Project Management module, the Select Project Manager
Project popup menu will display for you to select the project.

From Contract Manager, you can additionally create a link
from a Contract Manager project to a Project Management
project schedule. A link from within Contract Manager
enables you to review dates from the project schedule to see
how schedule delays or other factors affect the project. For
more information on creating a link from Contract Manager,
please refer to the Contract Manager User’s Guide.
