Error description

  • Description:
    The folder filter in the new Task Focused UI does not respect
    the selected reporting period - if changes are made to the
    Org-Structure (Renamed entities, Entities added, entities
    deleted, entities moved) the folder filter will always show the
    data of the current reporting period and not the data of the
    selected reporting period
    
    Workaround:
    Although the data from the current reporting period is shown in
    the folder filter, the actual results in the grid do not include
    the org-structure changes
    
    
    Prerequisites:
    
    Create a Finalized Reporting Period
    1.	Log into OpenPages as an admin user via a supported browser
    2.	Switch to the standard UI
    3.	Navigate to Administration > Reporting Periods
    4.	Click Add Finalized
    5.	Enter a name in the Label field e.g Data 2019 and click
    Create
    6.	Keep clicking Refresh until the process is completed
    
    
    
    Create a new Business Entity
    1.	Click Add New in the top right corner and select Business
    Entity
    2.	Complete the mandatory fields and click Save
    
    
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    1.	Log into OpenPages as an admin user via a supported browser
    2.	In the Task UI under the Person icon select the menu option
    to Change Reporting Period
    3.	Select the finalized reporting period created in pre reqs e.g
    Data 2019 and click Save
    4.	From the left navigation menu select an object to open a grid
    view e.g Business Entities
    5.	Click the filter icon on the left to open the filter
    selection
    6.	Click Select next to Business Entity to open the folder
    filter
    7.	Scroll down the list until you find the newly created
    Business Entity e.g Test Folder Filter
    8.	If you select the new business entity in the filter folder
    and click done, no results are displayed as expected.
    
    Expected Results:
    
    The changes made to the Org-structure should not be displayed in
    the Folder Filter for the finalized reporting period only in the
    current reporting period
    
    Actual Results:
    
    The changes made to the Org-structure are shown in the Folder
    Filter for the finalized reporting period as well as the current
    reporting period
