Issues Resolved:

K2 Server

  • Using a custom LDAP provider causes problems when returning the groups that an LDAP user belongs to.  When assigning process rights for example to that group, the LDAP user will not be able to start a process instance if start rights were assigned.
  • An error occurs stating "Invalid length for a Base-64 char array" when attempting to use SmartObject Services in a Kerberos environment.
  • After upgrading to K2 blackpearl 4.5 Update KB001420, redirecting a worklist item does not get logged in the K2 Server log file.
  • Using an Inline Function in a K2 Designer where an optional parameter is not set, causes a "NullReferenceException" error in the K2 Server.

K2 Designers and Wizards

  • The Default Client Event Welcome page has the Mobile Web Page option which is incorrect. The option should be displayed as Additional URL instead.
  • When saving a K2 Designer for SharePoint process, containing an InfoPath Upload document event, to a design file causes the wizard's settings to be blank when opening it in K2 Studio or K2 Designer for Visual Studio.
  • When executing a process containing a Forms Generation Client Event, a folder is created for the Client Event Page instead of a Web Application.
  • When configuring an escalation e-mail on an activity, the escalation e-mail is sent multiple times to each destination user instead of just once.  For example if the destination rule on a Default Client Event is set to Plan per destination with the All at Once option, and 2 users are added, the escalation mail will be sent twice to each user instead of only once.
  • When designing a process in K2 Studio and no line was added from the Start Activity, deployment succeeds.  An error should be thrown indicating the Start Activity line is missing.

  • If a user creates a K2 Studio project or process and the username of that user contains an apostrophe, a validation error occurs stating "A Project or Process name cannot contain any special characters". This is due to the apostrophe being added in the location path of the Project or Process.
  • When creating a new Campaign using the CRM wizard in K2 Designer for Visual Studio and the Status Reason is marked as required it still allows the user to navigate past the "Entity Attributes" window.  A process instance is also then allowed to be completed and the Status Reason is defaulted to "Proposed".
