APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the current architecture you need rights to create a new
    work order to create task.  Client believes that you should be
    able to create task without this option.
    
    I escalated the PMR for review and L3 suggested a new APAR.
    
    Steps -
    
    Remove user rights to create a new work order (from the
    security group application).
    Go to a existing WO and try to create a task.
    You will get an error  -
    BMXAA0024E - The action ADD is not allowed on object WOACTIVITY.
    If you give the user rights to create a new work order the
    error does not display.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * User could not add new tasks when they do not have the New   *
    * Work Orders security authorization. Per the development      *
    * manager and the product designer, tasks are components of a  *
    * work order. User should be able to add tasks.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * None                                                         *
    ****************************************************************
    We found a previous apar IV30384 which restricted the Add of new
    work orders if user does not have the New Work Orders right.
    This fix also restricted the add of tasks because the task work
    orders are stored in the WORKORDER table.The designer said: The
    fact that they are all stored in the workorder table is more the
    technical solution, not the business process.  Therefore, this
    new apar is to allow the tasks  to be created when the user does
    not have the New Work Order right.
