What does 'Default workflow' really means?

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I was confused couple of hours until I've found out what is going on...

1. Assume you got two different workflows: Default, Custom1.
2. Edit Workflows and set 'Default' as default workflow
3. Edit incident types and assign 'Custom1' workflow to the 'Bug' type
4. Raise a bug (of 'Bug' type) - it turned out the system uses 'Default' workflow! BUT, once you change type to something else and back to 'Bug', it correctly switches to 'Custom1' workflow now.

It drove me crazy for quite a long time, as in previous SpiraTest version it worked as expected (used Custom1 workflow)... There's obviously easy workaround to set Custom1 as default workflow, but seriously: what is the Default workflow for???

Hi Radoslaw

Actually that is not how it's supposed to work. Are you running the latest patch for SpiraTest (patch 007)?

If this still happens, could you please log a support ticket so that we can investigate and rectify if necessary.
