Severity: 4-Minor


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.


Devices go into a non-synced state.


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