Error description

  • DOORS module has two modules and one module contains a filtered
    view.
    
    When trying to create a link from Source to Target with filter,
    it also links to the parent object though it's not part of the
    filtered view.
    
    Steps to reproduce the issue
    
    - Create two modules Mod A and Mod B
    - Mod A has one object
    - Mod B with few objects where,
    Object 1
    Level 1 has 1 object
    Level 3 has 3 objects
    Level 4 has 3 objects
    
    Object 2
    Level 1 has 1 object
    Level 3 has 3 objects
    Level 4 has 3 objects
    
    - Create a Text attribute
    - Assign value as "x" for Level 3 and Level 4 objects
    - Create a filter on attribute with value contains "x"
    - Save as View
    - Now, on Mod A, right-click on object and Start Link
    - On Mod B, highlight all the objects in filtered view, Right
    click and Select Make Link from Start on Selected Objects
    - Turn off the filter and you will see the Object 1 at level 1
    also linked though, it was not selected.
    
    Expected Result:
    The Object 1 should not be linked as it was not part of the
    filter
    
    Actual Result:
    The Object 1 was linked though it was not part of the filter
