PO09678, WorkItem:278109 - Modal windows do not launch after JavaScript error occurs in console (8010_iFix5 ticket 1)


Issue Description:

Sometimes a JavaScript error occurs in the console which results in modal windows not opening. This error can be caused by a variety of user actions including deleting existing evidence. After this error occurs, the user must perform the extra step of refreshing the browser to open modal windows.

User Interface Impact: No

Steps to Reproduce:

Scenario 1:


  1. Log in as a caseworker and register a new person.
  2. Create a new social assistance case on the Care & Protection tab and then close the tab.
  3. Delete the address evidence in the person page, and select the 'No' option.
  4. Attempt to add new evidence by selecting the New page action.
  5. Issue: The New evidence modal does not open.


Scenario 2:


  1. Log in as an Insurance Affordability caseworker.
  2. Register a new person.
  3. Select New Application from the tab action menu on the person page.
  4. Enter only the mandatory information.
  5. For Household income, choose Yes and enter Income of 5000 yearly for Wages and Salaries.
  6. Submit the application.
  7. Open the application and authorize it from the action menu.
  8. Return to the person tab and refresh.
  9. Open the Insurance Affordability integrated case.
  10. Go to the Evidence tab and then select Verifications.
  11. Add proof for the Income Type.
  12. Open the All tab under Verifications and the verified income records are displayed.
  13. Close all other tabs except the integrated case that is open.
  14. Click the person's name in the context panel under their image.
  15. Close the person tab that just opened.
  16. Now back on the Verifications (All) tab, expand the Income Type record that was verified.
  17. Scroll down and under Verification Items Received, select the action menu and select Yes.
  18. Close the modal.
  19. Click the action menu and select Apply Changes on In Edit Evidence page.
  20. Issue: The window does not open.




The JavaScript focus error that was causing the problem has been fixed. The modal window now opens when the user creates new evidence and applies changes without having to refresh the browser.


PO09459, WorkItem:278123 - Evidence broker incorrectly shares evidence to cases when a case member is end dated


Issue Description:

The evidence broker incorrectly shares evidence to cases when a case member is end-dated but also has another active case participant role on the case such as 'Verification Provider'.

User Interface Impact: No



  1. Configure evidence sharing from an integrated case to the same integrated case.
  2. Select an evidence type that has verifications configured for that type.
  3. For the evidence select Share Verifications = Never, Trusted Source = No.
  4. Also configure another evidence type as listed in step 3. This evidence does not need to have verifications configured.


Steps to Reproduce (Generic):


  1. Log in as a caseworker.
  2. Register Person One and Person Two.
  3. Using the integrated case type configured in Prerequisites, create a new integrated case for Person One who should be added as a case participant. Add Person Two to the integrated case so that Person Two is also a case participant.
  4. On the integrated case, navigate to the Evidence tab and create new evidence for the first evidence configured in the Prerequisites (the evidence has verifications configured). The evidence can be added for either person.
  5. Verify the evidence by selecting the second person as the case participant who is verifying the evidence.
  6. Based on the appropriate evidence for your integrated case type, end date Person Two so that they are no longer active on the case.
  7. Apply evidence changes.
  8. Create a new integrated case of the same type for Person Two.
  9. Navigate to the Evidence tab and create new evidence based on the second evidence configured in Prerequisites (evidence with no verifications configured for it).
  10. Apply evidence changes.
  11. Navigate back to the first integrated case. Navigate to the Evidence tab then to Incoming Evidence.
  12. Issue: Observe that incoming evidence is shared from the second case to the first case. The second participant is no longer a member of the first case so there should not be incoming evidence.




Evidence is no longer shared to a case participant on a case if the case participant is not an active case member of the case. The issue was resolved by updating the code to check whether the case participant has an active and un-end dated case participant role of either ‘Primary Client’ or ‘Case Member’ on the target case when brokering evidence.

Issue Description:

The process spinner disappears after 15 seconds even if the associated activity has not completed indicating to the user that the process had finished when it is actually still running.

User Interface Impact: No



  1. Identify a process (for example a particular person search ) that requires more than 15 seconds for the server to complete.


Steps to Reproduce:


  1. Log in as a Caseworker.
  2. Navigate to Cases and Outcome, open the person search by expanding the short cut panel and selecting Person under Searches.
  3. Enter the search criteria that will start the process identified in the Prerequisite, e.g. Last Name 'Smith'.

The progress spinner no longer terminates after 15 seconds.



The maximum spinner timeout period can be increased by setting the curam.progress.widget.timeout.max property to an appropriate value in the file. The default spinner maximum timeout period is 90000 (90 seconds).
