PM89204: [wi261694] Changes in project area can be overwritten because editor does not refresh when IItemManager refreshes
Closed as program error.
Problem Description: When 2 or more users access to modify the same project's process template, update made by one user can overwrite the update made by another user. This does not happen when the changes made by the users are simultaneously (in this case, the second user will get 'Stale data exception' as expected). The problem can be reproduced when the template is left opened in the eclipse client for a long time (suspect to be longer than the Eclipse client connection timeout value). Steps to reproduce: 1. User A and User B logged in to the repository. Both have the connection timeout setting set to 60 seconds 2. User A and User B opened a project and navigate to Project Configuration tab ? Configuration Data ? Work Items ? Types and Attributes 3. User A changes the name of the Defect type from 'Defect' to 'Defect_byA' and save change 4. User B still has 'Defect' in his view 5. Both users leave the Eclipse client open, but do not use it (or use other applications to do other work) 6. After a few minutes, User B comes back to the Eclipse client. Without refreshing it, update defect name from 'Defect' to 'Defect_byB'. Save change. Confirm that it allows user B to change save. This overwrites the change done by user A. https://jazz.net/jazz/resource/itemName/com.ibm.team.workitem.Wo rkItem/261694
Using the Eclipse Client the following behavior is occurring. Process Template, ADMIN1 opens project process template to modify/add values. For example, add values to an enumeration field. Process template for Project is saved. Process template is not closed in eclipse client template remains on screen. Admin1 updates work items impacted by added enumeration value. Closes work items. Eclipse Client is still active process template for project is still open in window. No further work by current Admin is executed against process template. Admin2 has eclipse client running logged in for the day. Same Project, Process template is opened. Changes are made and saved to workitem form. No error messages, no warnings no requirement to sychronize process template with server. Save is successful Changes implemented earlier in the day by Admin1 are no longer in process template. Work items with these values added are now corrupted. The value cannot be found. Admin2 must read values to process template, save, sychronize work items and update each work item replacing the corrupted value.
