Queued activity within another Queued activity fails



One activity uses the Queue method to invoke a second activity which uses the Queue method to invoke a third activity.  This stopped working after a number of hot fixes were installed.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Install HFix-8818 and its dependencies.
  2. Create an activity C.
  3. Create an activity B which uses the Queue method to invoke activity C.
  4. Create an activity A which uses the Queue method to invoke activity B.
  5. Run activity A, and observe that B and C do not run.

Root Cause

One of the dependent hot fixes is HFix-7845 which introduces a new switch called "initialization/childrequestors/uselightweightauth"which is controllable from the prconfig.xml file, and is effectively defaulted to "true".  By setting this to "false", the Queue within Queue configuration works again.


Set the "initialization/childrequestors/uselightweightauth" switch to "false" from within the prconfig.xml file.
