Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113697
Author steps after finish and adding comment go to categorisation step
Last modified: 2010-09-03 10:27:56 EDT
Description of problem:logged on as author - create new article -
finish authoring steps, after selecting finish and adding comment
categorisation step is displayed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.logon as user
2.create new article
3.finish authoring step - add comment and select finish
Expect to be returned to /content-center
Currently upon completing a task, the author is left on the original
page, as post-task redirection may be a bit complex. It's hard to know
whether the author would want to go back to content center, go to the
browse pane, or stay on the current page. The only current exception
to this is if the author has an active deploy task on the same item
(true for rapid workflow), in which case the author is redirected to
the lifecycle tab.
Apparently this functionality was already agreed to be out-of-scope
for this release.

Scott - Your e-mail of 17/1 states that this item is out of scope.
As it stands, when you finish authoring, you are taken into an open
assign categories form which does not make sense. If you have just
finished a task on that item, you do not want to go back into one
step on that item either. - We need to at least return the user to a
neutral place - in my view, that is /content-centre
The problem is that the proper "neutral place" may be different to
different users. Since there's no one obvious appropriate place, the
current behavior is to leave the user in the current location. If
you're on the categories screen when you say 'finish', then you stay
there. If you're on the metadata step, then that's where you stay.
It was listed as out-of-scope since the requirements didn't address
it, and at the time there did not seem to be a trivial solution, since
the global redirect may not be universally appropriate. I'll speak
with Dan and Brian to see if there may be some quick but more
appropriate solution, but I'm not sure what we'll be able to do here.
OK, we've decided to implement this as an optional feature, tied to
the "streamlined creation" parameter. So the same parameter that turns
on the automatic opening of basic properties and body text steps and
forwarding from one authoring step to the next controls the redirect.
When streamlined creation is set to true, then the user is redirected
to /content-center after entering workflow comments. The only
exception to this is if the next step is deploy _and_ the commenting
user also has this assigned. THe use case here is the two-step rapid
workflow will go immediately from 'finish authoring' form to the
QA_READY has been deprecated in favor of ON_QA. Please use ON_QA in the future.
Moving to ON_QA.
