Skins do not get picked up randomly



When using circumstancing the pyCaseManager portal with different skins rules, the portal styles are not all refreshed to the new ones when switching portals by updating the circumstance and refreshing the screen.

Steps to Reproduce

Circumstance portals on a property value.  Each portal should have a different skin.
Switch portal by updating the property used for the circumstance and refresh the screen.
create new cases.
Not all styling is updated to the new styles.

Root Cause

The pyCaseManagerPortal uses multiple threads, and these are not reinitialized until the user logs off, and back in.


Possible local change solutions.

- If implementing custom skin switching, force the user to log off when switching skins (i.e. updating the circumstance).

Create an access group and associate this with a separate portal which in turn contains a separate skin. The user would then have to list this access group to their Operator ID.

- Circumstance the harness rules instead. The circumstanced version of the harness rule would include the specific styles that would override that of the Skin rule.
