Error description

  • ClearQuest 8.0.0.1
    
    In ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.1,  the following error message appears
    when trying to modify a record after selecting a value for a
    field that has a value change hook.  The error is slightly
    different, depending on whether Internet Explorer or FireFox is
    being used:
    
    Conflict error: Error from RPC server: PROPPATCH failed:
    The field 'XXX' cannot be modified because it is currently
    read-only.'
    
    This situation occurs only if the read-only checkbox field does
    not have a default value in its schema definition.

    ****************************************************************
    When trying to submit or modify a record in ClearQuest Web,
    selecting a field which has a value change hook may result
    in the following error message "Conflict error: Error from
    RPC server: PROPPATCH failed:  The field "XXX" cannot be
    modified because it is currently  read-only."
    
    This error occurs when the value change hook is supposed to
    reset a field to it's original value and then make it read
    only.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.4.
