Known Issues

Issue Description
Fixed: Cannot use the latest WSDL with the Developer Sandbox The 2008-02-14 WSDL can now be used against the Developer Sandbox.
Cannot disable retry delay for a Qualification type once enabled. There is currently no way to disable the ability to re-request a Qualification if the Qualification type allows retries. A previous release introduced the ability to add a retry delay to a type that doesn't have one, or modify the delay if it does. Once a type has a retry delay, then retries are permanently enabled for the type.
Cannot remove a test from a Qualification type. There is currently no way to remove a Qualification test from a Qualification type that has one. A previous release introduced the ability to configure a Qualification type to automatically approve Qualification requests instead of using a Qualification test. Because tests cannot be removed from an existing type, a Qualification type with a test cannot be re-configured to use the auto-approval feature.
SearchHITs can include duplicate HITs in results. The SearchHITs API may return a HIT more than once in the results if there are more than 100 active HITs created by the caller when using a sort property other than Enumeration.
