Micro Focus Vibe 4.0.2


Starting with Vibe 4.0.2, if a user tries to edit a section or sub-section of an entry by clicking on the [Edit] hyperlink for that specific section/sub-section, then upon committing the changes the entire description of the entry is lost.


To restore the entry's data, the user should visit the entry where description is lost and under the "Entry History" tab, choose the "Promote to Current" for the last version of the entry. This will bring back the last full version of the entry's description.

A fix for this issue is available in the Vibe 4.0.2 Patch 1, available via the Novell Patch Finder. The fix will prevent any further data loss on entries if their sections/sub-sections are edited.
