  • 1.  Synch/Lock bug

    Posted 10-03-2022 09:07
    So we just had an interesting thing happen, and im pretty sure this is a bug.
    User 1 has an object open on their computer.
    User 2 edits the same object on their computer making a user lock.
    User 1 does not refresh their browser, and transitions the lifecycle/workflow to a state that creates a system lock
    Jama does not give an error. It creates the system lock, performs the transition, but does not refresh the screen.
    After a refresh, the lifecycle/workflow transition is now grayed out, even though User 2 and Org Admin have a valid transition available because user 1 has the object locked still.
    This fact is not visible to admins/anyone but User 1.
    I had to as org admin, go clear the system lock manually, which revealed the user lock "underneath" which I then removed. (User 1 was gone for the day)

    Its weird to me that a user locked item can be transition out from under their change.

    FYI, we are running self hosted

    Hi Rory, 

    Quick question here -- is User 1 in this case set as an org admin, or are they set differently?

    I had a similar issue some time ago. In my understanding it was related to SOS-DEF-5196 (fixed in 8.62).
    @Carly Rossi it is my past ticket at Jama Support #57052 (2nd part of ticket ...). Maybe it helps ...

    Thanks for sharing that, Alessandro! It's helpful in digging in here, and it sounds like they're adjacent (though I'm not sure they're related).

    In SOS-DEF-5196, user locks were able to be added on top of in-place system locks and, in this case, it sounds like the user lock was in place through User 2 before User 1 transitioned the project and creating the system lock. @Rory Duncan, is my understanding accurate?
