Error description

  • The object type permissions needed in order to use the Move
    feature of the Task UI grid view are stricter than necessary,
    and also confusing in some cases.
    
    In order to move an object from one location to another, the
    user must have Delete permission on the source location, as well
    as Write permission at the top level security domain in the
    target hierarchy.  So to move from:
    /GFS/Entity1
    to:
    /ABC Co/Entity 2
    The user must have Delete permissions at Entity 1, and also
    Write for ABC Co
    
    If the user does not have Write permission to a top-level domain
    entity, that entity and all its descendants will not be
    available as options to expand or select in the Move dialog.
    
    Moving related objects is also confusing, as anything that is
    not located in its parent folder will not be moved, despite
    appearing in the Move dialog as a related object to be moved.

Problem conclusion

  • We had to make multiple changes to correct this:
    
    1.  When populating the destination folders we considered 3
    types of objects: Business Entity, SelfContained Or Master
    Object Type, and rest is all other object types.
    2.  The only time we move associated resources is when we move a
    business entity or SelfCOntained or master object. That's where
    we want to show the related objects to be moved. We made that
    check when we are populating the related object count in the app
    layer.
    3.  We fixed a blank in the error message.
    
    Customers should download OpenPages 8.2.0.2 Interim Fix 1 from
    Passport Advantage. See the following document for details on
    obtaining OpenPages 8.2.0.2 Interim Fix 1:
    https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/openpages-watson-8202-interim-
    fix-1
    
    Note:  This is now corrected in the OpenPages 8.2.0.2 Interim
    Fix 1 and will also be fixed in our next fixpack.
