Hotfix (KB3214755) for System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager Self Service Portal

Important

This update is applicable only to deployments that have Update Rollup 8 (new HTML self-service portal) for System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager and Update 3 (KB3144617) for System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager Self Service Portal installed.

Introduction

This article describes the issues that are fixed in this hotfix, and it also contains the hotfix installation instructions.

Issues that are fixed

  • The Self Service Portal adds the wrong user in the CreatedBy and AffectedUser fields when a request is created. This issue occurs when the Service Manager database has users from different domains but that have the same user name.
  • Requests that are created through the Self Service Portal always have the Source field of the work item set as Portal, and the Status field set as New. These values are not overwritten when a template or Request Offering input mapping is applied.
  • The Self Service Portal does not display the full name of users (such as the reviewers list for Review Activity and implementer for Manual Activity) but instead displays only the Domain\Username information for the user.
  • The Request Offering form crashes if it contains an empty Simple List.
