Error description

  • When attempting to submit a new version of an existing asset via
    RSA
    that contains customised date attributes, the user is able to
    update the
    field with a new date value, but is unable to clear the field to
    remove
    it's contents.  For example, our Topology asset has a customised
    
    'Requested Deployment Date' field which is used to determine
    when to
    schedule the related Build Forge project.  When a designer is
    required
    to submit a new version of the topology for the next deployment,
    they
    should set this field to blank as this field will be populated
    at a
    later stage in the asset lifecycle, but currently the field
    cannot be
    cleared, it can only be set to another date.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Create a new asset attribute in RAM with a 'Date' type
    
    2. Create a new asset type in RAM and add the new date attribute
    
    3. Submit a new version of the new asset type in RAM, setting a
    value
    for the new date attribute.
    
    4. Switch to RSA, search for the new asset and import it into a
    test
    project.  The asset should appear in your asset explorer view,
    and the
    asset details should be displayed.
    
    5. In the asset details window, select 'Edit Version-?Create new
    
    version', and enter a new version number.
    
    6. Attempt to set the new date attribute to blank.
