Error description

  • Attribute features that affect change bars, change dates, and
    generate history remain checked in the edit attribute dialog
    even after you uncheck them.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. With a DOORS 9.3.0.4 client, create a new module
    2. In the new module, create a new object attribute
    3. For this new attribute uncheck the 'Attribute features' for
    'Affect change bars', 'Affect change dates', and 'Generate
    history' then click the OK button
    4. Then edit that same attribute again and notice those check
    boxes are still checked
    
    Expected results:
    When you uncheck the options for those attribute features, they
    should remain unchecked
    
    Actual results:
    The attribute features remain checked
    
    Notes:
    With the steps above, if you point a DOORS 9.3.0.3 client to the
    same data, you will notice those check boxes are unchecked as
    they should be. So a workaround is to use a DOORS client version
    prior to 9.3.0.4
    
    This can cause some serious discrepancies. For example, if you
    uncheck those options and modify that attribute for an object
    then the change bars, change dates, and history are not
    effected. But someone may think this is acting incorrectly. They
    may think the change dates, change bars, and history should
    actually be effected since the GUI indicates those options are
    checked.
