    ****************************************************************
    Whenever an attempt is made to delete a soft deleted object
    via UI, a DXL error is thrown :
    -R-W- DXL: ?standard/attribute/attribute.dxl:869? cannot
    modify attribute on a deleted object
    Backtrace:
        ?standard/attribute/attribute.dxl:1034?
        ?standard/attribute/attribute.dxl:1326?
        ?standard/attribute/attribute.dxl:1817?
        ?standard/object/attributesTab.inc:71?
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent this problem from happening anymore, a new check
    has been introduced. This check will pre-process the set of
    objects to be deleted. If there is at least one soft deleted
    object in the selection, a error box will be shown aborting
    the whole operation.
