ColdFusion 10.0  -  Bug 3351451

Cannot edit or delete scheduled tasks


Problem Description:

We recently put a fresh install of ColdFusion 10 on a server and created a number of scheduled tasks. I'm now looking to edit or delete one of the scheduled tasks, but when clicking the delete button in the task scheduler or updating the task and clicking submit I receive an error. Refreshing the list of scheduled tasks indicates the task has not been deleted or updated.

Also, all scheduled tasks are now upper case, though I believe they were mixed case when created.

Steps to Reproduce:

The error doesn't occur with newly created scheduled tasks, but ones I've created previously so I'm unable to reproduce the issue. With the current scheduled task either delete or edit the task and the following appears:

Actual Result:

Error Occurred While Processing Request

Error Diagnostic Information

The following task could not be found: [Task Name].

    Seems to be something Adobe enjoy BALLSING UP including the archive deployment. When you build a new product based on CF10 (aka CF11) did they start from scratch? They must have to have introduced so many NEW issues without addressing those still outstanding for CF10. Adam Cameron must be nearly rolling in his grave (if he was in one of course - which thankfully he is not!).

    I am no fool - or am I - using CF for 18 years nearly. Railo is looking better all the time.

    Regarding task names become uppercase after .car deploy and CF restart, this is a known issue #3194041 and is marked Open/ToTest/Fixed.

    Regarding pre-CF10 tasks being undeletable/uneditable, I recall this issue but not sure if it was ever filed. The issue is likely related to CF10's new scheduler engine (Quartz Scheduler) being case-sensitive. This is likely why parts of CF are having difficulty 'locating' the tasks in CF10. Looks like .car deploy wasn't updated in this regard.

    I am running into same issue on Windows 2012R2 x64. I have CF10 Update 13. Task was created and showed up in list. Tried to run it and got an error. Hitting the file directly works fine. So I went into task to check for a typo, tried to "submit" and got an error. Now it is not showing in the list anymore. I tried to recreate, and I get the already exists error. I can't restart CF because the server is in production.

    Problem still exists on a fully patched fresh install of ColdFusion 10 Standard x64 on Windows Server 2012 x64.

    Confirmed with us as well - this persists through the latest build.

    I have a similar problem: any time I edit an existing scheduled task, it throws the error "Unable to store Job: 'xyz', because one already exists with this identification.". If I then go back to the list of scheduled tasks, the task does not show up, however, if I try to re-create the task, it says the task already exists. Only after restarting the application server am I able to re-create the task. This is a high priority issue and must be fixed ASAP. It's hard to believe Coldfusion 10 would ship with such serious bugs. Coldfusion version: 10,0,11,285437; Standard edition; Windows Server 2008 R2

    This is occurring on my server - also a fresh CF 10 Enterprise install.

    We have the same issue with scheduled task names getting converted to uppercase. We did manually edit the neocron.xml file to import from our old CF install. This brought the old tasks over successfully though the names were uppercase. I then hand-edited the tasks including changing the name to mixed case, and changing the names of a few. They looked fine for a while, but after restarting CF all of the tasks names are now exactly as I entered them, but uppercase. All the rest of my changes were still intact. It's only the case of the names that change. Not a huge bug, but mildly annoying for those of us with OCD. ;-)
