More precise message when can't change state

Status: Future Consideration
by Distinguished Contributor xdumont on ‎06-22-2012 05:02 AM

I set a condition "MyProperty" can't be empty when go from WIP to FR.


But Vault just said (I simplify): I'can't.


I want from Vault:

I'can't because:

- MyProperty can't be empty.


Thanks in advance.

Current Generic Error message on Lifecycle Transition


Please support a detailed error message which explains which specific criteria is not compliant, so the end user can make the changes without having to troubleshoot the missing criteria.

Currently if there are criteria requirements for a lifecycle transition and they are not met, the user gets a somewhat cryptic message that doesn't tell them what they need to change.


Given that the criteria are based on properties, they should be much more specific, i.e.


Lifecycle Definition: Standard Release

Transition: WIP->Review

Transition not allowed due to criteria:

Linked to Item is "Yes"

Description is not null


This way the user would immediately know what needed to be done to change the lifecycle state.  Other systems even offer an "Audit" function that will evaluate the object without attempting to make the transition.
