DIS WEI Client: Drag in Folder, First File Does Not Get New Security Values Set on Form (Doc ID 1521758.1)

Using Framework Folders, a folder containing several files is dragged from the local file system into a DIS WEI folder. The DIS folder has Prompt for Metadata set, and a security group and account set. When the local folder is dragged in, the prompt comes up showing the default security group and account. If the user changes these values on the popup form and selects Apply to Remaining Items, the first file checked in does not get the new changed values; it still gets the values set on the folder. However, all the other files get the new values set on the form.

This can be reproduced as follows:

  1. Create a folder that has the Prompt for Metadata option enabled.  This folder also should use a profile to set the security group and account (and other required fields).  In this example, the profile sets the security group to Public and the account to Account1.

  2. Drag a folder containing 3 items from your local file system into this folder using DIS.  The metadata form pops up as expected, and it is set to the correct profile.  The form shows that the security group is set to Public and the account is set to Account1.  The popup form shows the name of the first file.

  3. On the form, change the security group to Secure and the account to Account2.  Check the box "Apply to Remaining Items" and click Finish.

  4. The item that was the first one checked in, the one that was shown on the initial popup form, did not take the change.  It still has security group set to Public and the account set to Account1 after checkin.  All other files show the correct values from the change though.

You see the same behavior if you do not select the box "Apply to Remaining Items". Instead, just change the form for each individual item.  In this case, the first item again did not get the change.

Note that if you drag in a single file, not a folder, you see the correct behavior.  The file checked in does have the correct changed values in this case.
