Visual Studio change Selection Field content after saving the WI

Eric Jodet (6.3k5111120) | asked Oct 25 '12, 1:17 a.m.
Using RTC 4.0, I customized my Project Area's workflow so as to have different status and resolutions associated.
I switch status to "Close" and Resolution = "Problem Fixed"
expected: status remain as "Problem Solved"
observed: status is reverted to "No Problem Found"

If this a bug?

Yes - this issue was identified on with defect Visual Studio change Selection Field content after saving the WI (236719)
The problem could be that in the process configuration default value set for the status is "No Problem Found" but in VS client the default value that gets populated is combo box is "Problem Fixed". Because of this when workitem is saved VS client does not send the status value(since the value is not changed in the editor) the server changes the workitem to default status value of "No Problem Found".

workaround: If I explicitly set the status to "Problem Solved" and then save the workitem then after saving the workitem the status is shown correctly.
