Designer is caching old version of process in IE
Last modified: 2014-08-06 16:09:17 EDT
Description of problem:
When editing a process in IE and then closing and reopening designer, it is regularly showing an older, cached version of the process.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open process in designer in IE
2. Edit process, save and close designer
3. Reopen designer
Showing old, cached version of the process
Showing new, updated version of the process
Works fine on Chrome and FF
In IE Setting, under Browsing History Settings, change Temporary Internet Files update policy to check for a new version "Every time I visit the webpage" (not "Automatically" whichis the default.
I believe adding something like the current timestamp as a param in the request might trick IE into believing this is different from the previous cached version and thus always retrieving the latest one.
fixed in designer master and 6.0.x branches.
The bug is not fixed in ER5. When I open a process in IE 11, change it, save it, close the designer and reopen it, there is an old version of the process.
Tiho, I can confirm this doesn't seem to be fixed in latest 6.0.x. Are you sure that the fix was cherry-picked (as I'm pretty sure I tested a fix at some point, that seemed to work)?
Workaround: Turn off caching of webpages in IE
For IE11: Tools -> Internet Options, in the General tab, under browsing history, click Settings button and in the Temporary Internet Files tab, set the Check for newer versions of stored pages to Every time I visit the webpage.
The original commit was placed in the 6.0.x branch. I have now added the no-cache directive on the designer jsp itself to help prevent caching of it in the browser. Please retest. This fix is in the Designer master and 6.0.x branches.
Tiho, testing latest 6.0.x still shows the same behavior.
