Problem:

Issue with saving empty value in the user defined attribute in the CR Form.

Resolution:

  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2005
  • Product Component: WorkFlow
  • Platform/OS Version: All

Description:

Why do I have issues with saving empty value in the user defined attribute in the CR Form even though that attribute is specified as required in the workflow?


Answer:

This is working as designed. There is an option to make fields required on your custom form, Required = . NULL is not an option at present. Custom enum fields have set default values, so inherently, all enum fields have a value already set and therefore are not equal to NULL. This satisfies the condition for "Required" fields.

It is allowable to create a custom value that is simply spaces, so it appears to be null, but there is really a value selected.

Borland currently have an open enhancement request to add NULL as an available option and this might be available in future versions of StarTeam.
