    Scenario #1: The UAD is changed so that the membership is
    updated. The user logs off and logs back into Portal. The
    membership is updated as expected.
    Problem: NONE
    Scenario #2: The UAD is changed for the user so that the
    membership is updated. The user does not log off from the
    portal and can see that membership is updated. However, if the
    user clicks the Work tab in the Portal, the membership does
    not appear to be updated.
    Problem: If the user goes directly to the Work
    tab, it does not look like membership is updated. However, if
    the user happens to click elsewhere in the portal and then
    returns to the Work tab, only then does membership
    appear updated.
    To reproduce this problem, follow the steps:
    1. Click on the Dashboard.
    2. Click My Performance.
    3. Click the Work tab. Membership is updated.
    Scenario #3: The UAD is changed for the user so that they do
    not have membership. The user does not log off from the Portal.
    Problem: The user can view their membership, which is NOT
    expected. The user should no longer see membership because
    the attribute was changed to something else.
    To reproduce this problem, follow the steps:
    1. Click the Work tab. The membership is as expected and is not
    updated. However, the user can still view their membership.
    2. Click on the Dashboard.
    3. Click My Performance and then return to the Work tab.
    

Problem conclusion

    details:

    ogin>
            <!-- Use this flag if you change user attributes often
    and require group memberships to be updated with the change. -->
    
    <update-dynamic-groups-on-uadchange>true</update-dynamic-groups-
    on-uadchange>

    on Fix Central. When the user goes to the download files page
