Error description

  • Problem
    If you have an attribute which is based on the 'user name' type,
     removing the user on which values are based will remove the dat
    a from display in any baseline.
    
    To Reproduce
    - create users tom, dick and harry
    - create a module with 3 objects
    - create an attribute based on the 'user name' type
    - edit each object so that tom, dick and harry are set for one o
    bject each
    - save module. baseline module. close module
    - delete user tom from DOORS
    - reopen the module. tom is missing from object 1
    - open the baseline. tom is also missing from object 1
    
    
    Possible Workarounds
    add the user back to the user list. The user can then be disable
    d so that they cannot get back into DOORS (if desired) and the n
    ame will re-appear in the baseline.
