Error description

  • In Graphical Scheduling (GS) when the Schedule is committed by
    a user other than the one who created the Schedule the
    WORKORDER.CHANGEBY is the Created By value in the Schedule, not
    the user who did the Commit.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create a Schedule with at least one work order in it.
    2. Give another user permission to Commit via Manage Commit
    Access.
    3. Log out of Maximo and log in as the user from step 2.
    4. Move the work order and commit the Schedule.
    5. As Changeby is not visible on WOTrack out of the box, run
    this select against the database:
    SELECT wonum, changeby, SCHEDSTART FROM WORKORDER WHERE wonum
    LIKE 'the wonums used' ORDER BY WONUM
    
    RESULT:
    The Scheduled Start/Finish dates are updated on the Work Order
    (as expected/desired).   WORKORDER.CHANGEBY is the value of the
    user in step 1 who created the Schedule, NOT the user who
    committed the Schedule.   The same is true when Commit Selected
    Records is used.
    
    Note: changing the status of a workorder from Scheduler DOES
    set the CHANGEBY correctly.
    
    EXPECTED RESULT:
    That Changeby be set to the user who did the Commit, not the
    one who created the Schedule
    
    VERSION INFORMATION:
    Reproduced in pre-GA 7611 Build 20190312.
