CA Clarity Integration – a client’s perspective

  On July 10th, 2014

Being that IT-ROI Solutions is an industry leader and trusted CA certified integration provider for Clarity PPM, I am always looking for a more concise way to communicate value and function of our Clarity integration products and Clarity integration services.

At IT-ROI Solutions our mission is to make PPM simpler. In order facilitate this, it has to start with clear messaging premised on “less is more” design so you the enterprise can get the meaningful information that you need faster that raise less questions going forward as the sales cycle begins.

Soon they started reporting a Blank Page or an application error when logging in. We then realized in some cases that portlet pages may not get deleted gracefully and therefore users must manually reset their home page.

To complete such an action, follow these steps:

  • Log in to Clarity with User Administration permissions
  • Navigate to Administration -> Resource Page
  • Click on the following button:
