Fixed Bugs

The following table lists and describes the bug(s) resolved in this caNanoLab release.

 DescriptionJIRA issue link
New Client: Samples: Characterization: Missing Ex Vivo and Other Ex Vivo Characterization Type when on the Characterization Main Page.CANANOLAB-888

New Client: When logged in as Researcher, "Submit for Review" button is not available for Samples, Protocols, and Publications needing to be Curated.

When a Researcher wants to submit a database item for review (Samples, Protocols, Publications), at the bottom of the Create or Update page for the item, the Researcher clicks on the “Submit for Review” button. The “Submit for Review” button was hidden from the end user and was unhidden in this patch.


New Client: Groups: When Expanding a Collaboration Group, Samples listed are not hyperlinked. 

When the end user selects Groups > Manage Collaboration Groups, they can view the Samples assigned to a collaboration group by clicking on the Collaboration Group Name to expand. Once expanded, the column “Sample Name” lists all the samples assigned to the Collaboration Group. The issue was that the Sample Names were not hyperlinked so the end user can navigate directly to the Sample to view. This patch release made the Sample Names hyperlinked.


New Client: My Workspace: My Publications: Incorrect Column Label.

Under my Workspace is the “My Publications “ section. The last column label was incorrectly labeled as “Protocol Access” and should be labeled as “Publication Access”.  This patch release corrects the column label.


New Client: Action\View Issues for Publication and Protocols Search Results when not logged in.

On the Home page, under Public Results, the user can click on the results number to bring up public Protocols, Samples, and Publications.  The Actions column was removed from the Protocols search results page since there are no Actions available. The Publications search results page had View links listed under an Actions column that lead to Page Not Found. These links have been removed.


New Client: Add Banner to notify end user of upcoming outage \ cut-over activities.

Added banner to caNanoLab Home page to notify end user of upcoming cutover activities.  The banner is to be activated after midnight of July 31st.  Proposed schedule:

  • Week of Aug 1-5:  Display warning banner. Have the banner posted for August 1st.
  • Monday Aug 8:  Shut down legacy system. Export database and file repository.
  • Tuesday Aug 9:  Final site preparation with imported database and files. 
  • Wednesday Aug 10: Go live. Redirect from old site to new site.

New Client: Groups: Researcher role is prevented from Expanding a Collaboration Group: Post 403 Error.

Researcher should not have the Collaboration Groups expand button.  That has been removed.


New Client: Composition: When editing Composition Element File, the original uploaded file is not saved and has to be uploaded again. 

When editing an uploaded file (such as Changing Keywords, Tile, Description) in Characterization Findings File, the user has to download and Browse to the file and upload it again to have the File Edit changes implemented.


New Client: Sample Characterization element has a default date of Dec 31, 1969: Change default date to today's date. 

For New Characterization Element or elements not having a date previously selected, the default date was set to Dec 31, 1969. Update default date to today's date.
