How does Webtop assign owner?
About three months ago, WebTop users began to receive errors when updating properties indicating that the owner of the document didn't exist. It appears that when documents are created, the owner assigned is often (but not always) set as the docbase owner rather than the user who is creating the document. I don't know why this suddenly began to occur. There have been no recent upgrades or patches to the software. The specific error is:
Error(s) found while validating the object:
Invalid value "<docbase owner here>" for the attribute 'Owner Name": User must choose value from the value assistance.
The properties modification is saved even with the error.
I resolved this issue by adding the docbase owner to one of the security groups so that it appears in the value assistance list. However, can any one tell me why it would assign that user as the owner? Why wouldn't the user/creator of the document become the owner?
