IV97614: Cannot revise project in Schedule tab with Gantt section


If you attempt to revise a project from the Schedule tab, where the Gantt chart is visible, your session is expired and you receive an invalid session error. The issue was observed in Internet Explorer and Chrome, but not in Firefox.

An analysis from a Fiddler trace shows that when revising the project in Chrome, this POST to GanttDataUpload.jsp seems to kill the session. In Firefox, for whatever reason, this POST doesn’t occur, and the state transition is successful. To confirm that this is the scenario you are experiencing, use the following technote to run a Fiddler trace and check for the same GanttDataUpload.jsp call: IBM TRIRIGA using Fiddler for tracing web browser traffic.

As a temporary fix, use Firefox. When the record is in a read-only state, no Save action should be called on the Gantt. Moving forward, we resolved the session-kill issue when the user performs a Revise action on a project in the Schedule tab.

IV97411: Adjusting task status on Gantt not working uniformly


Adjusting the task status on a Gantt chart with Ctrl/Cmd+click is not working uniformly across client operating systems.

We needed to disable the Ctrl+left/right-click and Shift+left/right-click, which are not working consistently across browsers and Mac, and reintroduce the right-click > “Set Percentage Complete” to the right-click menu. We also needed to update the “Percent Complete” message to be shorter, and update the message minimum width to be wider.

Moving forward, we removed the ability to set the percentage complete by using Ctrl+click, which does not work correctly on all browsers on all operating systems, replacing it with the ability to “Set Percentage Complete” by using the right-click context menu when right-clicking a Gantt task.

IV97418: Data Modeler locator mapping cannot open in Firefox


When trying to edit the mapping of a locator field within Data Modeler, the spyglass next to the field does not pop up the mapping window.

Firefox did not recognize the event JavaScript object. Moving forward, the user will be able to open the Data Modeler locator mapping window in the Firefox browser.

Why does the Print Preview in IE11 print a blank page?


We are currently using TRIRIGA 10.5.1/3.5.1.1. In IE11, when a record is selected to print, the printer gives a blank page. Whereas before printing, selecting Print Preview shows the page correctly. This behavior was not observed with Google Chrome, where everything gets printed without any issues.

After further investigation, it looks like a Microsoft Windows Update broke this print functionality, and they have since reverted the change that broke it. If you are on the absolute latest IE11 patch, the Print Preview should be working again. Take a look at this blog link. Microsoft has released KB4032782 to address the issue.

IV96296: Clicking “Activate” hangs when the space is opened from CI


After you open a space from TRIRIGA CAD Integrator, when you click “Activate” or “Save and Close”, the screen does not clear, and the tab in which the space record was opened, does not close.

The Chrome and Firefox browsers do not allow the closing of windows in certain cases. When this occurs, a message will be displayed to users letting them know that they have to close the window manually. It will not be closed automatically.

IV96057: Microsoft Edge browser is causing an inner frames defect


This is related to the latest update that Microsoft applied to Edge V38. After some interactions, the frames within the window fail to load, or to load data inside of them, giving a blank view with nothing in it. This is reported against Reserve, Reports, and other applications within TRIRIGA.

There is a bug in Microsoft Edge where a call to a HTML element’s innerText returns a blank, instead of returning the HTML’s element. Moving forward, an issue in Microsoft Edge that causes a form to disappear when clicking the Clear button on a date field has been resolved.
