Error description

  • The documentation does not state the fact that a self contained
    recursive object type can only have 1 parent of the same object
    type.
    This limitation should be documented in the following section
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFUEU_8.2.0/op_grc_
    admin/c_adm_comm_folder_config_selfcon.html
    
    Attempts to add another parent of the same object type will get
    the following error in the UI:
    
    Failed to create the association. The child object is already
    associated to a parent of the same object type.
    
    Prerequisites:
    
    OpenPages installed
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    1.	Log into OpenPages UI as OpenPagesAdministrator
    2.	Switch to Standard UI
    3.	Click Add New and select Sub-Process
    4.	Select a Business Entity as the parent, then fill in other
    mandatory fields and click Save
    5.	Repeat steps 3 and 4 twice to create another 2 Sub- Processes
    6.	Navigate to the detail page of one of the newly created
    Sub-Process
    7.	On the left nav, under Parents, click on Sub-Processes
    8.	On the right, click on Actions -> Associate existing
    Sub-Processes
    9.	Click on the Search tab and enter %, then select the other 2
    Sub-Processes so that you have 2 selected
    10.	Click Associate and confirm the error.
    11.	Check the cardinality settings of SOXSubProcess to confirm
    it is allowed more than 1 parent:
    
    Expected Results:
    
    Document should state that self-contained object types cannot be
    associated to more than 1 parent of the same object type
    
    Actual Results:
    
    Documentation does not list this restriction
    
    Error Message:
    
    None
