Error description

  • When renaming/editing the connection on IBM Rational ClearQuest
    (CQ) Maintenance tool (which may occur through routine
    administration or when creating a test environment from a copy
    of a production database) user preferences in CQ Web interface
    which may include favorites are encoded with static connection
    names (based on previous connection names that may be invalid in
    this environment).  When creating records, or other actions,
    these preferences/links get reloaded sometimes causing
    redirection to the database with the original connection name
    (if registered on the same Change Management (CM) Server host).
    
    The issue does not occur with the new accounts created after the
    connection has been updated.
