      Test Comments:
      Tested with the latest server build and it appears to be working correctly. The PM cell now returns all cells when logging into the client. I also verified the projects are using the correct cell when performing various actions such as running a query.

      Description

      When you log into the i2b2 Web Client or the Workbench, the client sends a get services request to the PM cell. The message returned from the PM cell contains the configuration for the user, the domain, and information about the different cells defined for the environment they are logging into. The client uses this information during the session to locate the appropriate cell when performing various actions.

      The problem is under certain conditions the data for the wrong cell will be returned to the client. The conditions for this problem to exist are as follows:

      1. Multiple projects defined in a single hive.
      - AND -
      2. The cells associated to each project are specific to the project (i.e. multiple cells with different locations).
      - AND -
      3. The user logging into the client has access to the different projects.


      Example:
      In the following example I am only showing the setup of the CRC cell but this issue will happen with other cells (i.e. Ontology, Workflow)

      Project 1 is setup with following:
            Project ID = Demo
            Project Name = i2b2 Demo
            Project Path = /Demo

           Cell ID = CRC
           Name = Data Repository
           URL = http://location-123/i2b2/services/QueryToolService
           Project Path = /Demo


      Project 2 is setup with following:
            Project ID = Demo2
            Project Name = i2b2 Demo 2
            Project Path = /Demo2

           Cell ID = CRC
           Name = Data Repository
           URL = http://location-456/i2b2/services/QueryToolService
           Project Path = /Demo2
        

      In the above example, when the user logs into the second project (Demo2) the PM cell will send back the data for the first CRC cell that it finds. This may be the CRC cell data for the first project, which means the client has the wrong location for the CRC cell.


      WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN:
      The PM needs to send back the appropriate data for the specific project the user is logged into.
