P4DTI issue job000034

TitleNo drop-down list of effects in TeamTrack interface
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionTeamTrack doesn't present a drop-down list of effects when creating or editing a fix record.
AnalysisThe replicator doesn't put the STATUS_VALUES keyword in the replicator configuration.
The reason why the replicator doesn't do this is because the bug in "p4 -G jobspec -o" (see job000004) means that it can't get the data out of the jobspec without parsing the jobspec itself. I haven't done this because it's more efficient to wait for it to be fixed in Perforce.
Perforce fixed the problem with "p4 -G jobspec -o" and the automatic cconfiguration engine made the allowable status values available. So the STATUS_VALUES configuration parameter can be set up correctly. However, this is now irrelevent because we no longer support adding or editing fixes from the TeamTrack interface. Hence the job is now closed. GDR 2000-12-31

History2000-10-20 GDR Created based on personal to-do list.
2000-11-21 RB Downgraded to nice. Might become important if TeamTrack fix their end and provide a user interface.
2000-12-31 GDR Closed because we don't support this feature any more.

Made design consistent with implementation: removed all TS_TIME2 fields. These are not used, since (1) TeamTrack creates TS_CHANGES entries when these records changes, and (2) we don't support editing or adding associated stuff in TeamTrack anyway. Corrected description of STATUS_VALUES keyword. Removed P4DTI_REPLICATED field from TS_CASES table and added P4DTI_ACTION.
Fixed a bug in the configuration generator -- it was using the wrong key for the 'state-pairs' parameter.
