In the Designer, the last changed user field for a process always defaults to 'admin' irrespective of who made the last change on that process.

Description Sona Mala 2013-07-11 15:15:19 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no update mechanism in Designer if collaborate two users on one process definition in the same time. User always rewrite the process by the his local definition. So win the last save.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.0.0 DR6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. both user open process definition
2. user1: create process Start("MyStart") -> User Task("My User") -> End
3. user2: create process Start -> Task -> End
4. user1: save a process
5. user2: save a process
6. user1: delete End and add Task ("AAA") -> End
7. user2: change property "Name" of Task to "BBB"
8. user2: save a process
9. user1: save a process and close Designer
10: user1: open designer

Actual results:
The user1 can see a different process:

Expected results:
Some notification about conflict:
  - merging mechanism
  - update designer if a process is saved
  - etc.

Additional info:
GIT repository log says that commit "Updated asset BPMN2-ConditionalStart.bpmn2" is always done by same user (admin <null>).

Seems the depending issue is already verified, setting back ON_QA

Comment 9 Sona Mala 2014-01-23 14:40:40 UTC
I verified that the dialog which resolves conflicts is shown up and options "Force Save" and "Re-open" work fine.

But there is one problem that an user does not know who changes that process. There is still user name "admin" no matter which user has saved the process. 

Same conflict dialog is shown even if the process is modified by one person.

So there is no difference between single user modification and modification by two and more person.

Comment 11 Tihomir Surdilovic 2014-01-24 17:51:58 UTC
the associated issue with admin user save by designer has already been fixed ( -- BZ 1049290

Comment 12 Lukáš Petrovický 2014-02-07 16:19:19 UTC
This no longer has a target release of 6.0.0.

Comment 13 Sona Mala 2014-03-11 12:47:28 UTC
I verify that a conflict dialog contains right user for 6.0.1 ER2 BPMS. (Not just admin user).

Now conflict dialog works as was expected:
   - show correct user
   - options 'Force Save' and 'Re-open' works properly

Unfortunately, one problem still persist but it will be described by another bugzilla issue.
