Authoring Console - Last Modified By RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I used the Authoring Tool to create a MP, added a new class, created a custom form and dropped a text box on the form linked to the "LastModifiedBy (Internal)" property.

    However, when I'm using the form in SCSM, I enter data into the form (yes there's other bits on the form) but after clicking ok to save and close and then re-open the CI, the last modified by is populated with a long GUID rather than the name of the console user.

    Is this "by design" or am I missing something here?

    Cheers,
    SB

  • Hi Steve

    What you're seeing is the id of the connector that was the last connector to modify the CI. It has nothing to do with the user last modifying the CI.

    To see which user last modified the object I would recommend using the History control (you know http://blogs.litware.se/?p=720 :)).

  • Could it be that the user CI is equal to that GUID. So you need to look up that GUID to get the "Display name" instead?

  • Quiet possibly Anders, I was just hoping that using the Authoring Tool would avoid the need for code by displaying the full name rather than a GUID when selecting Last Modified By (Internal)

    Any idea where to start with code to resolve a GUID to a user name?

  • That explains a lot!

    Thanks Patrik, I'd already removed the item off the form until I'd got this resolved so it's going to stay off.
    I've got the last modified date on there so the users can see at a glance when it was last changed and now that the history tab is back, they can go digging further if needed like you say.
