APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In a module configured for DOORS Change Management, if user
    chooses to review the changes associated with a given RCR,
    Layout DXL columns with Proposed Changes, Change Comments and
    Summary details are created. These columns have Auto Refresh
    enabled by default. Due to this, clicking on any object results
    in a visible refresh of objects in the display set.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Configure module for Change Management
    - Make some changes with an RCR and send the RCR for Review
    - Close the module
    - Open the module in read-only mode
    - Click on Change Management -> Requirement Change Request ->
    Review
    - Select the RCR that was sent earlier for review and click OK.
    - This will create a view with 3 Layout DXL columns, as
    mentioned in the description above.
    
    Changing the selected object results in all objects in display
    set being refreshed.
