Question:
I am using the automation feature within ARD. Whenever I edit code snippets, it changing all flows for all users. Why is this happening?
Environment:
CA Agile Requirements Designer (ARD)- Agile Designer 
Answer:
Editing the code snippets will result in changes to all flows that use the corresponding Action. If one user changes a shared configuration, that could result in errors in the generated scripts for another user’s model. Normally, this should not be a problem, as the code snippets need to be generic, but ambiguity/misunderstanding in what an Object/Action should do could result in this. We recommend either making the code snippet generic enough to fit both users’ scenarios, or create a new object and action.
