Context group changes not propagated to all jobs

I'm using TIS 3.1.2 I have context groups for my database settings, and additional group with multiple variables in it, such as the Days_History I want to extract.
When I update the value for a variable, I'm prompted to propagate modifications to all jobs - but not all jobs that use the context group(s) appear in the list. I've also tried using the 'Detect and Update' icon in the toolbar, with same results. Not everything gets updated.
What would cause this?

Re: Context group changes not propagated to all jobs

Hello
I tested on TIS3.1.2 and don't get the problem, it works fine. Did you import the context vars from repository in the job?
Best regards

Re: Context group changes not propagated to all jobs

Hi Shong,
Sorry, wrong TIS version. I'm using 3.1.4
Here's the steps:
1. I open the context group 'Daily_Load_Variables' in the repository and update the Days_History. I'm prompted to propagate changes to all jobs.
2. An update list is presented and I leave all the jobs checked and click OK.
3. It appears that all jobs have been updated, but if I then open a job in the list I'm prompted to update.
4. If I cancel that prompt - the previous value for Days_History is in the Job context. It never got updated.
I've uploaded images that show each step.
Thanks,
Celeste

Hello
3. It appears that all jobs have been updated, but if I then open a job in the list I'm prompted to update.

Normally, it don't prompt to update when opening a job. I tested TIS3.1.4 and I am prompted to update. Anyway, you should click on 'ok' button at step 4.
Best regards

Re: Context group changes not propagated to all jobs

Yes, I am prompted to update and I click OK. It says all the jobs are updated, but then when I open an individual job I am prompted to update again because the job wasn't actually updated. I don't want to have to open 60-70 jobs to check each one. Is there a setting somewhere that I need to check?

Re: Context group changes not propagated to all jobs

Hi,
I have the exact same issue... the only way to propagate the context modification is to open each job, let TIS detect and update the context variables and then save the job.
I have 120 jobs to update...
I tried to export project and the re-import, no luck...
Any idea ??
Thanks.

Re: Context group changes not propagated to all jobs

Hi,
I have the same issue. Is there any improvement on newest versions 4.2+ / 5.1?
Thanks

Re: Context group changes not propagated to all jobs

hi,
there is an option in preferences to check & propagate (add/delete) changes in context group.
hope it solves your problem.
