Target version:4.2.0
Resolution:Fixed Affected version:


When navigating to a page for a global object the "Activity" tab in the tab menu might link to /projects/:id/activity with the ID of the object instead of /activity. This is the wrong link and the link might be broken.

For example, when editing an issue query that is for all projects with the ID 123, the URL of the page is /queries/123/edit. In that case the "Activity" tab will implicitly use the ID of the query to construct the activity link and the "Activity" tab will link to /projects/123/activity. As the query is a query for all projects the tabs shown are for the :application_menu and the link should be to the global activity and not the specific activity of a project. Furthermore, a project with that ID might not exist so this might lead to an error page.

I hope this explanation was clear, if there is any doubt feel free to ask for a clarification.
