U4-6407 - Change Document Type feature on a node doesn't support compositions

Created by Jeroen Breuer 16 Mar 2015, 16:04:22 Updated by Shannon Deminick 09 Feb 2016, 15:00:51

When using the Change Document Type feature on a node it tries to map the old properties to the new properties. It can't map to properties if those properties are part of a document type composition.

After changing to the new docttype it seemed the properties with the same alias were still mapped over, but I couldn't select them in the dropdown during mapping.

I just tested the 7.4 beta2 and the issue is still there. Since compositions are becoming more important in 7.4 I think this should be fixed.

Using the methods we now have for getting all properties (own and compositions) instead of manually retrieving them from parents/compositions.

I've verified that this is working as expected now.
