Novell Vibe 4.0


If an entry with one or more select boxes is associated with a workflow process which utilizes the On Entry/On Exit > Set Entry Data feature, the entry's select box fields are reset thereby losing previously selected values.

For example: 'Entry ABC' has a selectbox 'Regions Affected (select all that apply)'. This entry is associated with a workflow which defines the following when entering the state 'Assigned': On Entry > Set Entry Data > Priority > High. As soon as the 'Entry ABC' enters the state 'Assigned', any previously selected value under 'Regions Affected' will get reset.


A fix for this issue is available in the Vibe 4.0 Hot Patch 4, available via the Novell Patch Finder.
