Audience: Everyone

Environmental details: Versions before 9.0

 

Problem/Summary:

Users may report an issue when viewing the Versions for Component, Set, or Folder items (aka Container items) where the version history shows a single entry that looks "merged" rather than indicating individual entries for each change made.

This can be seen here for this component item:

Meanwhile, the Activities shows this as a new entry:

Cause:

This was the expected behavior for Components, Sets, and Folders before Connect 9.0. This was because of how the pop-up/modal editor (seen below) worked when editing these items.

This behavior has been changed in our 9.0 Cloud Release and 9.0.2 Self-Hosted Release:

Editing Container Items

When you edit a component, set, and folder, the item now opens in the new inline edit mode.

To edit an item:

  • In the Explorer Tree, right-click on an item.
  • From the header, select Edit.

 

Workaround:

There is no workaround, but a history of changes can be seen via Activities.
