Error description

  • If you rename a group and change the status of the group in the
    same action, the status change does not apply to the individual
    CPs of that group.
    
    Reproduced in DOORS 9.3.0.3 with the following steps:
    1) Create a new Master group for some CPS
    2) Submit a new CP to make some change and add it to the group
    from step 1
    3) Open the manage groups dialog
    4) Select the group from step 1 and click 'Edit' button
    5) Rename the group and hit the 'OK' button
    6) Select the same group and click the 'Edit' button again
    7) Change the 'Group status' from 'New' to 'In Review' (note it
    doesn't tell you how many CPs are changed to 'In Review' as it
    normally should)
    8) Close out of the manage groups dialog
    
    Now if you open the Groups CPS module you see the group was
    renamed and the state shows 'In Review'. But if you open the
    Proposals module the CP which was part of that group is still in
    the 'New' state.
    
    Now if you repeat the above steps but if you combine step 4-7
    into one action so you rename the group and change the Group
    status in the same action, then you get differing results. The
    actual individual CPs also change from the 'New' state to the
    'In Review' state.

    Overall group status summary is being updated when the name
    is changed. This should only happen when the group status is
    updated.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fix requires additional test for a change in the group
    status before updating the summary status with the number of
    CP's in this state.
