Opened: May 30, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Devices on device-group get into state of not-synced when AVR-related widgets are created or modified. It occurs more frequently when manual config sync is enabled. It can also occur when visiting a widgets page for the first time that automatically creates default widgets on the first page visit, such as Security :: Overview : Application : Traffic. This can make it appear that a 'read-only' user visiting the page has triggered the need for a config sync.

Impact

Devices go into a non-synced state.

Conditions

-- Two or more devices are in a device-group. -- AVR-related widgets are created or modified.

Workaround

None.

Behavior Change

This release adds a DB-variable, avr.gui.widgets.sync, to disable widget syncing. Possible values are 'disable' or 'enable'. It is enabled by default.
