Issue: IView properties do not change after redeployemt of PAR file


We are migrating the portal content from 6.0 to 7.0, and I want to change the possible values for the IView property 'sapsystem'.

For many applications this works fine. But for some, a strange issue occurs.

I reimported a PAR file into NWDS 7.0. The PAR file was originally developed in NWDS 2.1.

Then, I modified the portalapp.xml file to change the sapsystem property.

However, after importing the PAR file into the new portal, the property values do not change! The old values are kept.

To make it more interesting, I changed the description as well. And that DOES change! The label changes, the values don't.

So the portalapp.xml file is in the correct location and gets processed. But partially.

I cleared the portal cache, (System Administration --> Navigation).

I deleted the archive using the Administration Console.

I cleaned the archive using the Administration Console.

I released the archive using the Application Console.

We even restarted the Portal.

Nothing I did solved the problem...

Anyone had the same issue?
