Error description

  • CR# 53459
    
    Problem:
    
    In DOORS 9.2, creating a link from an object updates
    the 'last modified by' and 'last modified date' for the object.
    That did not happen in previous versions when 'Generate
    history for..' was unchecked.
    
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    -In DOORS 8.3/9.1:
    -created a module with 3 objects as the Administrator
    -went to File-?Module Properies -? Unchecked the link history
    box: 'Generate history for...'
    -logged in again as another user, and created a link between 2
    objects
    -checked the module properties, attributes 'Last Modified By'
    and 'Last Modified On' does not change
    
    However, in DOORS 9.2:
    
    -performed exactly the same steps above and the attributes 'Last
    Modified By' and 'Last Modified On' did change
