Error description

  • Labeling in the dropdown is misleading (After start of Parent
    Process or Subprocess) on Boundary Timer and Intermediate
    Timer. They have different Trigger-on options.
    
    The intermediate timer (in-line) has for the first option
    "After Start of Parent Process or Subprocess" which in itself
    is misleading. While the Boundary (attached) timer has for the
    first option "After Start of Step".
    
    The main problem is the wrong DD option list is showing against
    a given timer type.  This seems to be random and it is as if
    the BPD can only show one type of option list at once
    (regardless of what timer type you are on). So both types of
    timer could show the Intermediate timer event DD option list or
    visa versa. This is making options available that should not be
    there and when it is the other way around it is not showing
    options that should be there. If you have selected specific
    options previously it is difficult to know what was chosen as
    it could be showing the wrong DD list at that time, making it
    very difficult to trust.

    view\edit the trigger.
    

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be incorporated into a later release that refreshes
    the options in the timer trigger combo according to the selected
    timer event.
