WEB DIRECT: Can't edit related field in popover of po is in a portal (round 2)
Operating system version
WS 2012 R2
Description of the issue
This is a well reported issue. If you place PO in a portal row and it displays a related field, edits to that field are not saved.
The notes for FMS 13.02 say this is fixed.
"5.5. Popovers in FileMaker WebDirect solutions
Addressed an issue where, when modifying a field value that is in a popover that is in a portal, the field value might not be saved."
In my case I am displaying in the PO a field in in table related to the portal table, which is related of course to the current layout TO.
In this case the problem is NOT Fixed.
Steps to reproduce the problem
See this KB thread.
Instead of simply related field, try a "related to the related" field
It will not update via a PO in portal.
If the PO is outside the portal the first related related record WILL update
Problem does not arise in FM client.
For testing I set all access to FULL ACCESS, so this is not a permissions issue either
I expected this to be fixed in v13.02 on.
There really isn't
