Here is the text of a new enhancement request I just submitted at ideas.automic.com:
PMPER-1993: AE DB Change should allow changing task pre- and post-conditionsIf you like this idea, please voice your support for it to Automic Product Management.
The AE DB Change program (ucybchng) v11.2.2 added the ability to use the OBJECT_USE to update object references in task pre- and post-conditions. Previous versions of the AE DB Change program were incapable of changing pre- and post-conditions. We have long asked for a way to change task pre- and post-conditions using the AE DB Change program, so we were pleased by the improvement. However, it was not documented, and there was no way to specifically change only task pre- or post-conditions.
PRB00121222 was opened about this, and Automic Development decided to revert to the old behavior. This means that when we update to a newer version of the Automic Utilities, we will lose the ability to update object references in task pre- and post-conditions.
We would like to be able to update object references anywhere they appear in objects, including in task pre- and post-conditions. Ideally, we would like to be able to target these updates specifically, e.g., using new ucybchng keywords such as PRECOND and POSTCOND.
