    Modifying overview page issue with formatted text widget

    I tried to move a formatted text widget and it continuously loads and adds an entire page length of space until next widget.

    Subspace and Project Tab displaying blank content

    If I click the tab "Sub-spaces and Projects" empty text comes up saying "Viewing the sub-spaces of:" with nothing following. Can be reproduced.

    "All Content", "Browse History" non-responsive  for "Insert Link"When you select either "All Content" or "Browse History" to insert a link in a document, nothing happens. Focus never moves off of "web address".  Can be reproduced.  Chrome and IE.June 29, 2015Becky Dozier

    From Jive Support: From this I have linked this behavior to JIVE-59111. Looking at this bug's status it is presently in an open/unresolved status so I do not have an ETA on a fix at this time. However, once this issue is closed by our engineering team the bug widget, located on the righthand side of this case will show a closed status.

    Table of Contents forced to topIn a document we have text before a table of contents. The html and the preview look great but when we publish it the TOC is forced to the top.June 30, 2015Ashley Wolf


    From Jive Support: I went back and retested this on 6.0.5, 7.0.4, 8.0.0 and Cloud (2015.2). It appears that this behavior only exists within the latest version of Jive. As a result, I've filed a Bug to have this address by Engineering.

    Bunchball Online Store Not WorkingWhen accessing our online Bunchball store, page does not load and gets stuck on "loading ...". Known bug as a result of latest cloud release.June 29, 2015Lindsey Riggs
    *update* The Jive engineering team patched this issue and we were able to restore the Bunchball Store with a maintenance patch release.


    From Jive Support: Currently no workaround available. We will need to wait for our engineering department to resolve this bug. I have filed this as a severity 1 bug and will follow up as soon as this is addressed.

    Cannot edit existing streams or create new onesThe links "New Stream" and "Edit Stream" (for the existing ones) are shown in the streams list (on the 1st page of the community), but they don't actually work. Clicking on them takes nowhere, so it's impossible to create ou modify streams.Jun 30, 2015Marcelo Yamada

    This is an issue related to the most recent Jive Cloud update (JIVE-59192) and has been logged for our developers to address.  I'll be concurrently investigating possible workarounds.

    [Marcelo Yamada, July 13, 2015] The problem no more exists after last deployment (see Fixed Issues in Jive-n and Jive-x 2015.2.2 Maintenance Release)

    Unable to drag & drop to update existing fileThe drag & drop problem was fixed prior to production for uploading multiple files, but still exists when someone tries to update a pre-existing file.  Dragging a new version of a file does not "take" when published and the old version still remains (no indication of error).June 30, 2015Dennis PearceFrom Jive Support: From this I have linked this behavior to an issue discovered since the 2015.2 release, JIVE-59163, which I have added to this case for tracking. Reviewing through the bug's notes there is a partial workaround listed which is to use the "click to add file" option instead of the "drag and drop" method.JIVE-59163
    External links broken

    After upgrade to 2015.2, external links to other internal apps that require SSO credentials no longer worked.  A workaround was to toggle off the "open in a new tab" option in the admin console. It appears that Jive implemented a change in how external links are handled in native Jive created docs.  It's adding a string: "" in front of the url in any link created in the interface.

    June 30, 2015Dennis Pearce / Ashley WolfFrom Jive Support (updated from our support group case -  Kim Nelson)

    this behavior to an issue in the current Cloud release, JIVE-59100. Looking at the bug's notes this issue is set to be resolved in the next maintenance release of the Cloud Platform, however specific dates have not yet been determined for this maintenance release.


    In the meantime, reviewing through the bug's notes, as a partial workaround (also as Dennis mentions), if you deselect the option to have these links open in a new window (admin console >> system >> settings >> external links), it should redirect the user correctly.

    Cannot invite External ContributorsWhen inviting an external contributor to an externally accessible group, the user does not receive the email invitation.June 30th, 2015Alexis Koplen

    Microsoft formatting lostI have business users who are reporting that some basic document formatting -- such as  bulleted lists -- that was being maintained during a copy/paste from Word to a native Jive document BEFORE the latest cloud release is no longer maintained.  Has anyone seen a loss of Word formatting through copy/paste? I myself have stopped doing copy/paste from Word long ago (so maybe I was unaware of advances in the formatting being maintained).July 22, 2015Becky Dozier

    9Something about setting up or completing an Advocate quest is flipping an open group to be secret.

    I can't localize the sequence (yet). I think this was due to selecting the open group in Advocates > Settings and not realising that the group would be changed to secret with no on-screen warning.

    Confirmed by Support, caused by adding standard user to 'owners' under Advocates > Settings.

    19Unable to save space as selection when configuring quests and missions

    When changing  the scope of a mission from "entire community" to a specific place, groups and projects can be selected but not spaces.  No error message, just the selection doesn't "take."


    Similarly when creating a quest, choosing a specific location for the "Follow a Place" event shows the same problem -- groups and projects can be saved but not spaces.

    20Can't upload a file to banner tile on News page when permissions are set to Manage News StreamsA user with system permissions set to (only) Manage News Streams will get an error when trying to upload a file to the Banner tile on the News page: "Unexpected error uploading file: You are not allowed to perform the requested operation."Oct 6, 2015Dennis PearceCase #391805JIVE-62744
    21Users with Manage News Streams permission cannot save changes to News Stream

    Granting the Manage News Streams permission to users who have no other permissions gives them the ability to edit the News Page but not to save their changes.  Instead they get a red bar with the error "You are not allowed to perform this request."


    This problem also exists in 2015.2


    Update Oct 7: Discovered that this problem is a unique situation affected by the installation of a custom tile we have.  Working with Jive Support to understand why a tile should impact a permission setting.


    Update Oct 15 from Jive Support: "It seems to be failing with a 403 Forbidden error against the /api/core/v3/pages/{pageID} API. I was able to reproduce the same results with our own HTML Add-on and HTML Tile as well. Workarounds appear to be removing/readding the Tile since it only happens on edits with a pre-existing Tile. Or upgrading the end-user to Full Access or Manage Community permissions."
