|Title||If you change replicated_fields and forget to refresh then fields may be mixed up in Perforce|
|Assigned user||Nick Barnes|
|Description||Section 9.1 of the AG tells administrators to refresh Perforce jobs every time they change replicated_fields. However, it's easy to forget. This can lead to job fields being mixed up in Perforce, for example the data for field A appearing in field B. It would be nice if the P4DTI could spot when this happened and warn the administrator, or take remedial action.|
|Analysis||The simplest solution would be to issue a warning or just stop with an error if such a change is noticed.|
Another possibility would be to attempt to re-use field numbers in the Perforce jobspec so that data matched and no refresh was needed. This would cope with re-orderings and deletions, but not with additions.
