Execute Process with Context not saving Wait for Process to Finish setting. (NETIQKB72961)

Environment

NetIQ Aegis 2.2

Situation

When using the Execute Process with Context activity, the check box to Wait for Process to Finish is checked by default. If this option is unchecked and saved, and then the activity is reopened, the Wait for Process to Finish box is automatically checked again. If the activity is not reopened after being saved, the sub-process will execute and the parent process will wait until it is completed before proceeding with the remainder of the parent process.

Resolution

To address this issue please apply NetIQ Aegis Hotfix 72998.

To manully work around this issue until the hotfix can be applied, see the steps below.

To manually fix the activity library:

  1. From the main Aegis Configuration Console, click on the link in the upper-right corner which says ?Create/Modify Activity Libraries? .
  2. In the Options menu, enable Developer Mode.
  3. From the Basic Workflow Activities activity library, drag the ?Task? activity onto the Process Design grid.
  4. On the General tab:
    • Change the Name to ?Execute Process with Context?.

    • Under Image, expand ?Category: Process and Workflow? then click the icon labeled ?Process?.
  5. On the Module tab, select the Module Name drop-down, expand ?Category: Process/Workflow? then choose ?Execute Process with Context?.
