Error description

  • If you try to apply an RCR that contains a change to purge a
    soft deleted object, you will get a "cannot delete Object: no
    access to source object" error.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Put a DOORS module under change management
    2. Select a default RCR
    3. Delete and purge an object
    4. Save the changes to the RCR
    5. Submit the RCR to review and work it through to the approved
    state
    6. Try to apply the RCR
    
    Expected Results:
    The RCR should be applied without error and the object should be
    purged from the module
    
    Actual Results:
    The RCR does not apply and this error is shown:
    "Error: Purge object 1 failed: -R-E- DXL:
    <standard/changemgnt/apply/ecpsapplyutils.inc:247> cannot delete
    Object: no access to source object"
    
    Note:
    It seems like the reason for this issue happening is because of
    the hardDelete perm. If you try to use that perm in a module
    against a soft deleted object, it will give the same error.
