Strange issue of webfiles or webpage nodes not editable in AX 2012
I was facing a strange issue with one of the AX 2012 implementation with customisation of EP and web deployments.
A brief on what we had seen si as follows
The issue was that you can’t edit web files or web pages in the AOT – so you change a property on one, you save it, looks like it worked, but close it and reopen it again and the change has reverted.
It happens when the compiler setup option to update cross reference during compile is enabled.
so we unchecked this option and the problem has gone.
But this was not a permanent solution as we need to ensure that cross reference is always updated on the Dev environment.
I think permanent fix for this issue could be to have the latest kernel.
