Description Eric D. Schabell 2013-07-24 10:57:56 EDT
I have started working on DR6 evaluation, wanting to try out my customer evaluation demo (https://github.com/eschabell/brms-customer-evaluation-demo).

I can't create a new process definition as it complains of a missing path that I can't edit. It has to do with no repository first being selected:

This was done on the EAP 6.1, then unzip the BPMS over that.

The real problem is that the user should not be allowed to create something unless they have a valid path selected.

If only the option to create a  "process" is not disabled when no path is selected this is a jBPM Designer related error.

A more obvious warning should be displayed other than the smaller "No path selected" message.

Bug raised after discussion on bpm lists.

Tiho, please check the "New asset" menu and popup has "Process" disabled if a project is not selected in the Project Explorer. I've checked the drools-wb type assets and they're all disabled if not path is selected. Thanks, Mike

This should no longer be an issue. Needs to be retested.
Comment 3 Zuzana Krejčová 2013-09-19 05:04:28 EDT
I see no change from DR6 regarding this issue.
Comment 4 Kris Verlaenen 2013-09-19 19:30:39 EDT
This will be fixed is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1003622 is solved (as you won't be able to select New Process if no path is selected).
Comment 5 Tihomir Surdilovic 2013-09-23 12:15:09 EDT
fixed in designer master and 6.0.x branches

Verified for ER4.

I tried this scenarios:
  - an empty repository (no project and no package are selected)
           -> result: Business Process is disabled in drop-down menu
  - operation save of data modeler cause that Path is reset to Repository dir
           -> result: Business Process is disabled in drop-down menu
  - in technical view I go to the repository dir and then switch back to the business view:
           -> result: Business Process is disabled in drop-down menu
