Error description

  • There is a discrepancy in the way the IBM Rational ClearQuest
    (CQ) for Windows client and the ClearQuest client (Rich Client
    Platform) (RCP) client process a multiple record update
    operation when a modification to the record is included in the
    validation hook of the modify action or the validation hook of a
    base action.
    
    The Windows client seems to consider the operation on the
    validation hook as part of the modification to be propagated to
    all records, while the RCP client does not.
    
    The result of this is that in the Windows client all the records
    but the first that was selected get the modification from the
    validation hook twice, one as the result of their own validation
    hook and another one as part of the modifications to the first
    record supposed to be propagated to all the records. In the RCP
    client the modification generated by the validation hook of the
    first record is not propagated to the other records.

Problem conclusion

  • This issue has been addressed in the new ClearQuest Web
    8.0.1 Multi-Record Update feature.
    
    There are no plans to fix this in the CQ Eclipse and CQ
    Windows Client.
