Error description

  • CQ Web 8.0.0.x does not recognize a modified drop down list
    control field if it was originally set via hook
    
    Steps to reproduce
    
    1.)  Add a hook to list control named 'Email_sent' on a CQ
    record that resets the value from Yes to No using
    $entity-?SetFieldValue( 'Email_sent', 'No' );
    
    2.)  Modify the record and change 'Email_sent' to Yes.
    
    3.)  Select a notes field on the record and add some text.
    Email_sent will be reset to No by the hook
    
    4.)  Go back to 'Email_sent' and change it to Yes.
    
    5.)  Commit the record
    
    CQ Web 8.0.0.x does not recognize that Email_sent was set to Yes
    so the e-mail is not sent.  This was not a problem in CQ Web
    7.1.2.x.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If a drop down list control field was reset via hook and then is
     modified, CQ Web 8.0.0.x can not recognize the modified field
    and treats it as unchanged.  NOTE - This issue only occurs in CQ
     Web 8.0.0.x.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.5.
    
    CQ Web now correctly recognizes a modified drop down list
    control field if it was originally set via hook
    

Temporary fix
