After the release of PRPC 6.1 SP2, several hotfixes were developed to correct defects, limitations, and usability issues that interfered with new Case Management features. If you are using Case Management in 6.1 SP2, you should install the following hotfixes.
Before you install the product hotfixes, install the required hotfixes for Update Manager in Process Commander 6.1 SP2 that are identified on the Hotfix Self-Service — PRPC Update Manager
page, located within the PRPC Update Manager Downloads
HFix-3040, Usability issues in Case Management
The hotfix corrects several usability issues with Case Management:
- Tree Grid with Edit In Pane enabled never renders, spinning indicator persists
- The Log Off link is hidden underneath the user ID menu
- Case Manager portal missing tabs for Cases, Tasks, Dashboard, and Reports
- Case Management Review harness missing the Take Action list
- New Work list needed at top of the portal
- Styling of Case Manager portal needs improvement
- Case Definition tool does not properly show Owner in case hierarchy
- Cannot specify icons for Case and Task types
- Help link on landing page broken
HFix-3183, MSSQL error (Unclosed quotation mark) in Case Manager portal
Using the Case Manager portal, you get SQL errors when trying to open a subcase within a case hierarchy. With MSSQL Server, attempts to retrieve the top-level cover key for a case hierarchy trigger a Database Exception. This issue only affects Case Management using MSSQL. The hotfix corrects the function pxGetTopLevelCoverKey to properly handle MSSQL syntax.
This HFix replaces HFix-3042.
- Ensure that SmartInfo pop-ups display at every nested level of the tree grid
HFix-3694, Cannot save or wrong RuleSet for covered case type rule instances
When you try to save new or updated covered cases or tasks on the Case Types Definitions gadget, the underlying case type rules are not saved or are saved to the wrong RuleSet. This causes unpredictable behavior in the application. These problems occur because PRPC saves case type rules and related rules in the RuleSet of the parent case type, when it’s available.
This default behavior does not work for layered, framework applications. The hotfix corrects Case Type tree flow actions to detect and choose the best open RuleSet and RuleSet Version for the current operator and to save new or updated case type rule instances in the best available RuleSet and RuleSet Version, instead of always preferring the RuleSet of the parent case type.
HFix-4616, Starter flows not listed under Run-Process and New Work gadget
After upgrading from PRPC 5.5 to 6.1, you notice that no entries for starter flows appear on the Run - Process menu and the New Work gadget, even though the rules for starter flows are available and can be searched and opened. This problem occurs if an application (or Built-on application) contains more than 50 work pool classes. The hotfix corrects this defect, allowing an unlimited number of work pools for starter flow caching.
HFix-3055 (Optional), New stylesheet for overriding tab styles for screen flows
Your solution framework or application needs an alternative stylesheet that overrides the tab styles for a screen flow. The hotfix delivers pySimpleTabsStyleOverride.css as an optional stylesheet for you to apply.
