    respectively
    - Save both modules and close the modules.
    - Open Module B which has the in-link.

    Deleting an object that contained a link from a purged
    module generates diagnostic logs
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Create Module A and B
    - Create a link from Object A to Object B in Module A and B
    respectively
    - Save both modules and close the modules.
    - Open Module B which has the in-link.
    - Delete and purge Module A.
    - Now, try deleting Object B in Module B.
    

Problem conclusion

  • While trying to delete an object in a module, the function
    that validates the links (in-links and out-links) tries to
    access an invalid link whose parent has already been
    destroyed. This process is now extended to validate the
    existence of the parent module before accessing it. After
    this fix, the problem is resolved and the user is able to
    delete the object.
