    We were able to reproduce the defect by following these
    steps
    
    1. Adding test coverage to synchronized requirements.
    2. Adding the alert "When a requirement is modified, alert
    the associated test instances".
    
    When a sync task is executed manually, the type of
    synchronization (full or incremental) is provided.
    However, when a sync task is executed through the scheduler,
    no such input is provided - a scheduled task runs with the
    same type of synch was executed just prior to it.
    
    Therefore the following scenarios may occur:
    
    a) If the last successfully executed task was run with full
    sync, then the scheduled task will run with full sync.
    b) If the last successfully executed task was run with
    incremental sync, then the scheduled task will run with
    incremental sync.
    
    What was happening here was that the defect is caused as the
    task was executed with the full synch option prior to the
    scheduled task execution.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Scheduled tasks were changed so that they always perform
    incremental synchronisations.
