Bug Fixes

Environment Change Request

Problem Fix
When a layer to be changed is in Completed status and the user wishes to make further changes to the Change Request, upon saving the current component value would be replaced by an empty value. The table has been extended so that all entries on the page are visible to the user.

Environment Schedule

Problem Fix
When saving a Booking Request with just an Environment, it would sometimes not appear on the Environment Schedule. The Booking Request now appears correctly when a Booking Requested is saved to an Environment.

Release Manager

Problem Fix
After saving an Activity or Criteria, the progress bar of the Phase or Gate does not update the results. The progress bar now updates correctly when an Activity or Criteria has been updated.

User Management

Problem Fix
In IE9, the last two entries were not visible unless the user clicked on the last visible entry and pressed the down arrow key. The table has been extended so that all entries on the page are visible to the user.
The Sort Ascending/Descending button would only sort the entries on the currently viewed page. All entries are now sorted correctly when the sorting is clicked.
