|Title||Refresh script fails if you change the closed_state|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||Suppose you start out with closed_state=None and people make fixes in Perforce to the state "resolved". Then you set closed_state="resolved" and run the refresh script. This fails because it tries to make fixes to the state "resolved", which Perforce refuses because there is no Perforce state "resolved" (Perforce now uses "closed" instead).|
|Analysis||The configuration generator could look at the fix "effects" in the defect tracker and make sure all of these are available as legal states in Perforce.|
Or we could translate the fix effect when we replicate it to the defect tracker.
GDR 2001-07-17: Or we could tell people to go into their database and change all this stuff by hand (or say "call support"). But in TeamTrack it's not so simple because of the way fixes are packed into structures. We could have a script that changes a status in the fixes table in the defect tracker.
