#108: Prevent product prefix from appearing editable
  Reporter:  olemis        |      Owner:  gjm
      Type:  defect        |     Status:  accepted
  Priority:  critical      |  Milestone:  RC1 for initial release
 Component:  multiproduct  |    Version:
Resolution:                |   Keywords:  db relationships integrity

Old description:

> Product prefix should be considered as an immutable identifier set once
> at product creation time . It must not be changed ever again (at least
> not in web pages delivered by Bloodhound project ;) . One strong reason
> for doing so is that all relationships between products and other
> resources involve product prefix , so if prefix may be changed then there
> are two choices :
>   1. previous relationships will be broken
>   2. whatever relationship involving products (not just limited to
> Bloodhound,
>      considering the fact that other plugins may add their own links too)
>      will need to be updated
> IMO option '''1''' is unacceptable whereas option '''2''' is hard to
> maintain in practice and prefix updates might take a '''very''' long time
> (even if data consistency is ensured , which is a whole subject on its
> own) . So users who want to change product prefix should use external
> tools , scripts , ... in order to get that done .

New description:

 Product prefixes are not editable but the admin interface appears to
 suggest that they are. Make prefix fields appear uneditable at the
 appropriate time.


Comment (by gjm):
