The current harness is always replaced after the dirty popup



Current harness is replaced even when user chooses to "cancel" on the dirty pop-up and stays on the work object harness.

Error Messages

Not applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Open any work object and make changes.
2. Click on "Dashboard' from the left navigation panel.
3. Dirty pop-up appears asking users to press "OK" to lose changes and move to Dashboard (OR) press "Cancel" to stay on the Work Object.
4. User presses "Cancel" hoping to stay on the work object,  instead the dashboard is loaded.

Root Cause

User has configured "Dashbaord" with showHarness as shown below 

With 'Target' as 'Replace Current' and 'Submit Current' set to yes, the current harness is always Saved and replaced. The dirty pop up should ideally not be seen in this scenario.


Choose set the "Submit Current" option to "No" to stop the dirty popup from appearing.
The unnecessary dirty pop-up shown when Submit Current is yes, will be suppressed in the future release.
