Resaving a Proposition with validation error saves it



User has a DeclareOnChange rule configured for Validation on a Proposition (data table) entry. When user edit a row (via clicking on the Edit button), validation occurs and it does not allow the change to get Saved. However, clicking on Save again Saves the value (bypassing the validation).

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a Data Table
2. Create a Declare OnChange rule which gets triggered for the changes in properties mapped in the data table.
3. Call an activity from the Declare OnChange rule which adds a validation message.
4. Test the Data Table row by editing the property column which is mapped in the Declare OnChange.
5. Try Saving it twice.

Root Cause

While using Declare OnChange, the Proposition row was getting locked and it was not possible to make any changes to the proposition. This was because the Section was not being reloaded.


There is a OOTB Proposition Group Authorization feature present in DSM 7.1.7 where users can be restricted to change the propositions present under a group. If we are trying to achieve the same then we might not have to use DeclareOnChange or Validate rule approach to restrict the users from editing the propositions under a group.
