PlatformOSOS Version
Product Version1.9.19 (2019 Q1) 
Fixed in Version2.0.0 (planned) 
Summary0008736: Requirement versions compare page: user reported as 'undefined'
DescriptionThe Requirement versions compare page provides all available requirement versions and revisions for comparison.
Each version/revision is listed with the related time stamp and user information.

The user information is only correct for the initial version. All other entries display with user 'undefined'

This is only minor severity and low priority, because the user can still be found inside the actual version.
Steps To Reproduce- Create a requirement and freeze the version
- Create a new version of the requirement
- Create a new revision of the requirement
- Select the requirement and select option 'View history'

Now, the available versions display with the incorrect user information.
TagsNo tags attached.

Observing the same issue. Pls have a look in the related ticket 0008731, added some info and thoughts.

Please do the following changes and retry [^]

the issue seems related to how different MySQL versions consider a NULL timestamp
Some MySQL considers 0000-00-00 00:00:00 as the NULL, according to server configuration.

Dear fman,

thanks for the quick response. Tested your fix briefly, works as expected.

I just see one minor issue which is related to the comment in the related issue:
After the fix still the modification_ts entry in the data base for the new revision can be misleading, as it is (for my mysql db) the modification_ts of the previous revision. (pls have a look at the scrennshot of the db content)

This can lead to a modification_ts "before" creation_ts which may be misleading.

Still only a cosmetic issue as this timestamp never gets displayed as the modifier_id is NULL.

thanks for your collaboration.
A better fix IMHO will be change for all modification_ts the column to:

- allow NULL
- default NULL

then request that MySQL will be configured to use NULL and not 0000-00-00 00:00:00

@heju and @fman

Thank you both very much. I can only contribute by testing from a user perspective. Works as expected.

=> correct user ID and time stamp is now shown for:
- existing versions/revisions
- new changes

See also attached screenshot for user interface after fixe
