Read-only, long text fields will be cleared of their values when objects are updated

Flash (Alert)


Abstract

An issue (APAR: PM80256) has been identified in the OpenPages GRC Platform that could lead to unintended data changes. Customers with read-only long text fields in their profiles will find the fields are cleared of their values when objects are updated.

Content

DESCRIPTION:
Read-only long text fields can be cleared of data when the objects are updated. This will only occur with long text fields configured to be read-only in the profile. Please see PM80256 for additional details on test scenarios.

AFFECTED PLATFORMS:
IBM OpenPages GRC Platform 6.2 and 6.2 IF1

REMEDIATION:
Until a fix for this issue is released, customers should not configure long text fields to be read only. Removing the read-only flag from long text fields in the profile will avoid this issue.

To restore any data that was cleared from a read-only field, review the audit history for affected objects and restore the data based on the changes captured therein.

FIX:
OpenPages 6.2 IF2 has been release to addresses this problem. Please see OpenPages GRC Platform 6.2.0.0.2 (Interim Fix 2) for more details
