SMTM Defect Correction - Assigning Project

Hi

I'm just testing Defect Correction (we are using ZMTM).

We have Project as a mandatory field (same as standard) and you can ONLY choose projets which have a Change Cycle of TEST. This is no problem and I understand why this is the case.

However, I think I may have found a bug. After you have created the defect, you can click on More > Change Project Assignment. When you do this, you can suddenly choose ANY Project. For example, I just reassigned a defect to a project with a Change Cycle of DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT RELEASE (and it worked).

Is this a bug or is there a reason why you can do this?

Thanks

Shaun

    Thanks Dan.

    I've actually sorted this out. If you go to /TMWFLOW/VC_PHMD in SM34 you will see what actions are allowed in each phase.

    Development without Release had TEST_ASSIGN (which means you can assign existing defects to this phase). Where as Test had TEST_CREATE (create new defecst against this phase).

    I have modified it so we can create defects in below phases:

    Development without Release

    Development with Release

    Test

    However, I've only allowed transports to be created in Test 😊

    Thanks!!

    • Hi Khaja

      Thanks for the links but I know all that information.

      If you read my above post, I'm specifically asking about the ability to ASSIGN A NEW PROJECT to the defect AFTER it has been created.

      When you do this you can choose a project that is in a phase OTHER THAN TEST. I'm assuming this is a bug? Or is there a reason for this?

      Thanks
      Shaun

    Hi Shaun,

    This function available for all types of CD's normal change, defect change and urgent change.

    And I think, there is no check on release cycle phase, yet.

    Also a problem may be a lack of customizing in AIC_SETTINGS for predecessor / successor checks.

    Check it, if problem still there, create OSS.
