Error description

  • Using the Copy Objects functionality if you have level 1 soft
    deleted objects when copied to a new module these willl not be
    soft deleted in the copy. All other levels (2,3,4...) are copied
    as soft deleted.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create a module with hierarchy
           1
           2
             2.1 - soft deleted
           3  - soft deleted
    2. Create a new module to copy data to. (Module B)
    3. Open Module A. From taskbar choose View > Show > Deletions to
    show all deleted objects
    4. From taskbar, choose Tools > Functions > Copy Objects>
    5. Set Target module as Module B, [Copy] as all objects or
    display set and select all Attribute Names. Click OK
    6. Open Module B. From taskbar choose View > Show > Deletions to
    show all deleted objects
    
    Expected:
    Soft deleted objects are copied as soft deleted objects
    
    Actual:
    The level 2 object is copied as soft deleted but the level 1
    object is not soft deleted.
    
    Workaround:
    Use copy module functionality instead and objects are copied
    correctly.
