Error description

  • Environment:
    - Client: Microsoft Windows 7 / Rational Software Architect
    8.5.1
        - Server Microsoft Windows 2008R2 / Rational Software
    Architect Extension for Design Management 4.0.1
    
    Reproducible: Y
    
    Description of problem:
    
    When trying to upload a project to Design Management via the
    Rational Software Architect client, the user can choose a
    project area that is not Managed by Design Management. There is
    no message that prevents the user from doing so, and the wizard
    won't then let the user go further than selecting the project
    area without any explanation message.
    
    It is expect that either the project to be displayed but not
    selectable (greyed out for instance) or entirely removed from
    the Selection Dialog. And in both case, a warning message should
    be displayed to explain why such projects can't be selected.
    
    Steps to reproduce
    
    1) Create a new Project Area via the Design Management web
    client and make sure it is externally managed.
    2) Create a new Model Project in Rational Software Architect
    3) Click the Upload To Server Button
    4) Click the add button
    5) Add the project area and its associated workspace
    6) Notice that previous page of the wizard is display (where it
    is possible to add a project area) but that the project area
    selected has not been added and that no warning messages have
    been displayed.
    
    There is no workaround.
