Error description

  • Each time a migration is performed between RDS instances the
    volume of tdsDOORSUserId values increases.
    
    Eventually, after 2 or 3 migrations there will be 4 or 5 of
    those values (depending on precise previous usage).
    
    At that point ACLs which are stored in the DOORS database using
    those values will break.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - setup a DB to use corporate RDS
     - apply access controls for a given user to a
    project/folder/module
     - migrate to a new corporate RDS instance
     - verify that the ACL still works, and that a new
    tdsDOORSUserId value has been added for the user record in RDS
     - migrate to a second new corporate RDS instance
     - assuming at least 4 or 5 tdsDOORSUserId values are now
    present the ACL will fail to function.
