Strange Copy Master Detail Behavior

  • 1.  Strange Copy Master Detail Behavior

    I'm having trouble with the copy master api on mobile.

    Copy Master Detail API is below. Works great on desktop. But on mobile, it makes 2 copies when the URL button is pushed (I tried 'pushing the button lighter and quicker to test if i was accidentally hitting it twice. I am not).

    What is strange, is if I remove the numbers of the Report Links to copy, it works just fine on mobile. Makes only one copy. See below.

    var text CopyMasterDetail = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=API_CopyMasterDetail&destrid=0&sourcerid=" & ToText([Record ID#])

    & "&apptoken=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

    & "&copyfid=116"

    & "&relfids=75,73,191,189,193,429"; // IF I DELETE THESE NUMBERS IT WORKS FINE

    var text ReturntoFieldHome = URLRoot() & "db/bpu98ejpu?a=showpage&pageid=101";

    var text LandingURL = $ReturntoFieldHome;

    $CopyMasterDetail

    & "&rdr=" & URLEncode($LandingURL)

    Sounds like buggy behavior for sure. What does Customer Care say?

    Does the other method work in Mobile.  The one where it builds a button for you from the app?

    If you have to bail on this method and the wizard won't  work, then Plan C can be to do this via an Automation.

    Customer Care believes it is a bug. I was hoping someone could think of why the bug was happening, and that would lead to a work around. I'm not sure if the same behavior happens with the default button it can build for me. In fact, I can't remember why I am not using that method lol. There was a reason I couldn't, but I should at least try for troubleshooting purposes.

    I wonder if this can be done with pipelines??

    I believe it can be done with an Automation.  We would have to work on this one on one ....
