Deployment Source Directory


If you clear this field, Deployment Source Directory, the validation doesn't catch that it is empty anymore. It does not show under the Validation Error tab like it would on a brand new orchestration. Error does occur when deploying to a server saying:

2:35:52 PM: Validating activity parameters

Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: The argument SourceDirectory is required and cannot be null or empty string.

This is a know issue within the Windows Workflow component. The workflow state is not refreshed upon change of the properties. We put this in our Bug list and will get to it according.
