Commerce Renames Existing New Category / Node Item When It Should Be Creating A New One


I am experiencing a bizarre bug in EPiServer Commerce when creating a new Category / Node.

The steps I take to replicate this bug every time are:

  1. View an existing catalog node by clicking on the paper-pencil edit icon
  2. Click the Cancel button
  3. Click Create New and choose New Category / Node
  4. Fill in the information and click the Save button
  5. The new category node is not created; instead the node that was viewed beforehand is now edited with the information intended for the new node

Does anyone have any insight? Is this a problem others have experienced? How can this be fixed?

I just tried to reproduce this in the latest (yet to be released) version and wasn't able to. It's definately possible that there could have been a bug there that have been fixed.

I suggest that you register an incident with our support and they might be able to help you:

Hi Nicklas,

Thank you for your response. I cannot submit an incident report for some reason. (Please see this screenshot)

I can get one of the other developers here to submit an incident for me. Although, it would be great to have the ability to do this with my own account.

I see. I think that in order to be able to register incidents your account here on episerver world need to have something called "partner access". I'm not sure but I think you can try mailing the web masters for world at about that.

Can you replicate that using other browser/machine?

Sure thing. This has happened on various machines running Windows 7. I have replicated this issue in the latest version of Firefox and also IE10.

I Can Confirm I can replicate this, You need to raise this with EPiServer.

Click On Some Existing Category, Press Cancel.

Click On New Node and press save, Previously selected category will be updated.

There is a cache settings that you can try in <Cache enabled="false" appTimeout="0:0:0" />

We have an incident report open for this issue and EPiServer have yet to resolve.

Thank you for confirming that this bug can be replicated outside our environment. We'll try the cache setting you suggested.
