Disappearing comparison data

Sometimes, checkpoint and output value comparison information disappears from the bottom panes of the Asset Comparison Tool after refreshing it. This can occur if you do the following:

  1. Open the Asset Comparison Tool to view a comparison.

  2. Switch to the Object Repository Manager.

  3. Modify any of the current comparison's checkpoints or output values.

  4. Save your changes.

  5. Switch back to the Asset Comparison Tool.

  6. Refresh the Asset Comparison Tool.

  7. Select the checkpoint or output value that you modified.

Workaround: If this occurs, close the Asset Comparison Tool, and then open it again after you save your changes.

Comparing two baselines

When comparing two baselines, if the only change in a resource is its association to a test or component, the Asset Comparison Tool does not indicate any change in the resource even though ALM may indicate that the resource is Modified.

Additionally, changes in the DataTable are not shown in the Asset Comparison tool. Open the Data Table nodes for the test or action to view these changes.
