Error description

  • ProcessService#validateIterationStructure goes to great lengths
    to validate that any timelines and iterations saved in the repo
    are structurally sound. We make sure that all the parent/child
    links are consistent, that a timeline's current iteration
    actually belongs to that timeline, and so on.
    
    There's a major oversight in this validation, however, which is
    that we don't complain if you remove a child iteration from its
    parent and only save the parent. In this case, we will just look
    at the parent's remaining children for validation, which allows
    the old children to be orphaned.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Iterations can be orphaned if owning iteration or timeline if
    code remoes a child iteraiton from its parent and only saves the
     parent.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Update save code to validate that parent getting saved includes
    all children that list iteration as parent
