Configuration Center:Disable Deploy button when while import is in progress .

Hi Team

Please disable Deploy button when while import is in progress .

We had urgent situation where even through the values are present in the Codelist map is unable to fetch the Values.So we tried to undeploy and Deploy it agian and it worked.

L3 infomred that Root Cause of the issue was : Deploy is currently enabled for a codelist while an import is in progress is how the system behaves today

To avoid such issues happeing in feature, an Exception should be poped up while doing that Deployment that there is Import in progress (or) Disable the Deploy button when the Particular Object import is in progress.

This is related to Defect:

Sev1 case :TS003549721

Coloration Case no: TS003550356

Please check and let me know if you need any further information.

How will this idea be used?

We have encountered many such situations were codelist entries were not found by the map and there is no way that support can understand if the deployment was actually successful until customer comes and report us .
