Error description

  • PROBLEM:
    Workflow Grant Security Access - MASSUPDATE  does not filter
    licenses and groups correctly
    ENVIRONMENT:
    3522
    10.5
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    Navigate to Bulk Security Utility and crate record.
    Add user for testing.
    Add Group that is already assigned to user.
    Add licences that have been assigned to user that.
    Click Update Record action.
    Validate user. Licenses and Groups have been duplicated.
    Analysis:
    Problem is ?Grant Security Access - MASSUPDATE? workflow that
    does not filter data correctly due to various tasks in this
    workflow not set correctly.
    Also Get Templates task seems to be an issue as it does not
    define Object Type.

Problem summary

  • The "Update Records" action on Grant Security Access Form will
    not create duplicate of Groups/Licenses on People and My
    Profile if the Groups/Licenses selected are the same as the
    ones added on People or My Profile. Also, fixed the issue to
    create new Groups if the "Clear Existing Security?" checkbox is
    checked.
    To resolve this, in  Workflow Builder edit:
    Grant Security Access - MASSUPDATE : This workflow has been
    modified to fix the issue of not creating any duplicate
    Groups/Licenses. Also, the fixed the issue to create new Groups
    if the "Clear Existing Security?" checkbox is checked. And the
    legacy code which was not cleaned up in the last few releases
    has been removed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The "Update Records" action on Grant Security Access Form
    creates a duplicate of Groups/Licenses on People and My Profile
    records if the Licenses/Groups selected were the same as the
    ones added on People and My Profile. The issue has been
    resolved by modifying the workflow "Grant Security Access -
    MASSUPDATE" to not create any duplicate Groups/Licenses if they
    are already added to People and My Profile. Also, fixed the
    issue to create new Groups if the "Clear Existing Security?"
    checkbox is checked.
    This is targeted to the 1h2017 release.
