2099261 - Behaviors - Lock Behavior Content or Make it Dynamic Using lock-behavior-content tag - Competencies

Symptom

  • Using lock-behavior-content behaviors can be configured to be either static or dynamic content on your forms.
  • If they are dynamic then if you change the behavior description or behavior name in your competency library, the behavior description or name will also update on your live forms.
  • If they are locked any edits made will not update live forms.
  • Can we update the behaviors on live forms?
  • How do we stop the behavior descriptions from changing on forms?

Environment

  • Performance & Goals

Resolution

  • It will only work for job-specific competency section (the behaviours have to be mapped to the jobcode as well as the competency)
  • For Core and Custom competency Sections the behavior name and description are hardcoded onto the form on form creation > changes are not possible
  • lock-behavior-content is an element that is configured on the PM template at the xml level that can be either true or false.
  • This cannot be edited via admin tools at this time
  • Behavior content will only update when someone physically opens the form, so unless users do that, reports may still show the old descriptions.
  • Tip: Use the template open&save feature to trigger the update for mass forms.
  • This applies to behaviors only and not competencies

lock-behavior-content - true or false (default to false) If behavior-mode-opt is set to 0, this attribute is assumed false.

  • If behavior-mode-opt is non-zero and this is set to false, behavior list is not hardcored to the form during form creation and form modification, and behavior list is linked to the corresponding competency.
  • In this case, when jobcode changes or behavior name/description is updated, the behavior for the existing form instances do reflect changes.
  • If behavior-mode-opt is non-zero and this is set to true, behavior list is hardcoded to the form during form creation and form modification, rather than being linked to the corresponding competency.
  • In this case, when jobcode changes or behavior name/description is updated, the behavior for the existing form instances do not reflect changes.
