User would like to know if it is possible for instances ID's that are members of patterns remain static after they are edited.
I was reviewing a Pattern for some validation testing that a user was doing for me, and asked him to edit the Defect Comments field to add the date and a mention of which Module passed and which failed. I had left the View Pattern page at
open in the browser.
After getting his email that he’d made the requested change, I switched to this already-open AMP page and clicked the Edit Pattern button on the View Pattern page so that I could confirm the edits he’d made to Defect Comments.
I thought maybe his edit of the Pattern caused a change to the Pattern ID, but it’s still 115804,
If I open that same Pattern ‘fresh’ in a different browser tab, the Edit Pattern modal opens fine.
Ah – the Instance IDs related to that exact Pattern changed, which I can see from comparing prior Excel output to the current post-edited values.
