Asset self-calibration status does not update after unlocking a locked system

Attempting to start an asset self-calibration on a locked system will correctly show "System Locked (changes suspended)" under Status. If the system is subsequently unlocked, the status will change to "Self-Calibrating" but will not update further. This issue is cosmetic only, and the self-calibration completes correctly.


Run the self-calibration again with the system unlocked to reset the status.

Using the browser navigation buttons does not correctly change a query

On pages with a query panel (Assets, Calibrated Assets, Reports, etc.), the browser back button does not work as expected. When a user presses the back button, the URL in the browser changes, but the filters do not.


Remove the filter using the X button next to the property selection field instead.
