Local fix

  • here is a simple workaround for this issue but our client think
    its not acceptable.
    
    workaround: need to change the status of the decommissioned
    location to active
    
    
    Business case: I think the solution here is poorly designed. I
    should never have to move an asset back to a site or change the
    status of something to correct an issue. The system should
    either delete the associated assets when decommissioning a
    location or allow me to move an asset back to an original site
    even though the old record is associated to a decommissioned
    location. Thanks.
