RCA Description:Regression Test C8351. Bug
MNT-17015was triaged as 'Won't Fix' because it had not been raised by a customer at that time.
In Alfresco 5.2.0, a user tries to start a workflow against a document via the action list in Document Library. After clicking "Start Workflow" button of a workflow form, there is no response in the browser and the user has to click "Start Workflow" button again to make page redirect. This causes two duplicate workflow tasks to be created.
It only happens when user starts the workflow via action list in Document Library and chooses a Due Date.
Steps to Reproduce
1. In an OOTB Alfresco 5.2.0 login as any internal user (e.g. admin) and go to Document Library of any site in Share
2. Hover over a document and click 'Start Workflow' action from the document action list
3. The Workflow: drop down appears with built-in workflows available as options
4. Choose 'Review And Approve (single reviewer)'
5. A start-workflow form is displayed for input
7. Enter a Reviewer. It's important also to choose a Due date, otherwise the problem is not seen
8. Click 'Start Workflow'.
The workflow is started, therefore the browser should re-display the Document Library and the start-workflow page should no longer be displayed
The start-workflow page remains displayed, allowing the user to click on Start Workflow again. If the user now clicks Start Workflow, a second Workflow task is started. The second
click on Start Workflow restores the expected behaviour. However, there are now two Workflow tasks created where only one is expected.
The problem is is not seen with Alfresco 5.1.1.
