Abstract: Let $k$ be a field and let $G$ be a finite group. There is a canonical element in the Hochschild cohomology of the Tate cohomology $\gamma _G\in H\!H^{3,-1}\hat H^*(G,k)$ with the following property. Given a graded $\hat H^*(G,k)$-module $X$, the image of $\gamma _G$ in $\operatorname {Ext}^{3,-1}_{\hat H^*(G,k)}(X,X)$ vanishes if and only if $X$ is isomorphic to a direct summand of $\hat H^*(G,M)$ for some $kG$-module $M$. The description of the realizability obstruction works in any triangulated category with direct sums. We show that in the case of the derived category of a differential graded algebra $A$, there is also a canonical element of Hochschild cohomology $H\!H^{3,-1}H^*(A)$ which is a predecessor for these obstructions.
