Error description

  • QC 34918
    
    Problem
    It is possible to delete a linkset from a link module but have
    the links remain in the source/target formal modules
    
    To Reproduce
    1. Create a source module with one object
    2. Create a target module with one object
    3. Link the two objects created in the above steps together
    either via the default link module or any existing link module
    and then save the source/target modules
    4. Make sure you leave the source module open!
    5. Open the link module and delete the linkset for the
    source/target module pairing
    6. You get a warning that all links and link attributes will be
    deleted, click Confirm and close the link module
    7. Now since you still have the source module open, you notice
    the link created in step 3 is gone
    8. But if you close the source module it asks if you want to
    save. If you select no and re-open the module the link is
    present again
    
    Results
    Linkset is gone but any link which was defined via that linkset
    pairing remains

    Defect existed because there was a difference in link
    deletion with and without GUI window for source module.
    Basically the source module was updated and saved when it is
    NOT opened by user (no window).
    However when it was opened by user is was just updated (and
    marked as modified). So it was up to user to save the
    module.
    

Problem conclusion

  • User is queried to continue with linkset deletion if he has
    source module opened in exclusive edit mode.
    
    "The source module MODULE_NAME for this linkset is currently
    open. When you delete the linkset, out-links from the source
    module will be deleted and the module will be saved.
    Do you want to continue?
    [Yes]  [ No]"
