1624043 - Work Status does not lock user from creating comments


When you set the work status for a given entity dimension to a work state that only allows for the manager to process the record, a user who is not a manager of the entity dimension is allowed to create comments and save them.

The message displayed to users when inserting comments to locked intersections using "Add new comment" in Action Pane is "Your comment has been stored in the database"

comment stored in database message

Following instructions described in 1529062 (How to check audit, journal tables -BPC NW) it is possible to confirm that this intersection is locked and open the comment table to check the stored comments. Even with the sucess meesage, this comment does not exist in the database.

When adding comment to the same locked intersection using EVCOM() function in Excel client the expected "FAILED" message is displayed:
