Type: Bug


When you try to create a new category with the same name as its parent category nothing happens and the category is not created. However if you change the name the category is created without any problem.


This is a problem that only occurs when the parent category is a placed directly below a unit and the new category is given the same name as the parent. It is caused by a constraint (rule) in the underlying database that states that the combination of the Unit ID, Category Name and the Category Parent ID must be unique.


Customers that experience this problem should either create the category with a different name or upgrade to Content Studio version 4.0 build 1005.


This is a confirmed bug in Content Studio version 4.0. This problem has been fixed in Content Studio version 4.0 build 1005.
