Fix required : Not able to restart RBF job from GUI, when the job is triggered as 'API-Only' user
Issue : When the RBF job which gets triggered from API as "API-Only" user fails, we are not able to restart the job from GUI as "normal" user. Note: GUI is logged in as 'normal' user
Work around TSR provided : Use SQL to update the build ownership to a normal console user in the database and restart the build via console UI
Challenges with the workaround : 1. We need to get RBF server backend access and RBF DB schema access for all the GUI users (deployers) which is not recommended 2. It is very difficult to execute the query for every failed job
What we expect : A solution to restart the failed jobs without running DB query Other Concerns : Currently we are running on RBF version 188.8.131.52. We have approximately 300+ RBF agents. If the Fix for the issue is provided in next release(probably version 8.0.0.x), we will have difficulty in upgrading RBF to 8.0.0.x version since upgrading all 300+ agents to 8.0.0.x version is a huge effort. Hence the fix is expected to be a patch in the exiting RBF version.
