Error description

  • After editting the details for an enumerated string field, it
    is not possible to save the correct default value. The
    subsequent value is saved unless the last value in the sequence
    is selected, in which case the correct value will be saved.
    
    The following are generic steps to reproduce the issue described
    in this APAR:
    
    1. Open a supported browser.
    2. Go to the OpenPages URL.
    3. Login with an administrator id.
    4. Using the navigation menubar, go to: Administration -> Object
    Types.
    5. Click on an object type (ie: SOXTest).
    6. In the 'Included Field Groups' section, click on an existing
    field group. (ie: OPSS-Test )
    7. Enable System Admin Mode (SAM).
    8. Click on the 'Add...' button in the Field Definitions
    section.
    9. Give the field the name 'MyNewEnum' and select data type
    Enumerated String.
    10. Click the double arrow next to Enumerated String
    11. Type 0 in the Add Value field and click the Add button on
    the right hand side
    12. Repeat step 11 for the values 1,2,3 and 4
    13. Click on the 'Create' button.
    12. Disable SAM.
    13. Using the navigation menubar, go to: Administration ->
    Object Text.
    14. Expand the object used as part of step 5.
    15. Expand the field group name that was used as step 6.
    16. Expand the newly created enumerated dropdown field that was
    created in step 9.
    17. Under MyNewEnum field, scroll down to the 0 value and click
    on the node to expand it.
    18. Click on one of the entries under the 0 value ( ie: en_US)
    and edit the label for the  0 value (ie: zero )and click save.
    18. Repeat steps 17 and 18 for the remaining values 1,2,3 and 4.
    19. Use the navigation menubar and go to: Administration ->
    Object Types.
    19. Click on the object type again (ie: SOXTest).
    20. Click on the same field group again. (ie: OPSS_test)
    21. Click on the newly created enumerated string field,
    MyNewEnum.
    22. Click Edit and change the default value to be: 0 and click
    Save
    23. The default value becomes 1
    24. Repeat step 22 again and set the default value to be 1,2,3
    and 4.
    
    Expected Results:
    
    The chosen default value selected should be saved but the
    subsequent value is saved.
    
    Actual Results:
    
    Depending on what value is selected, the system may save the
    default as a different default value.
