    ****************************************************************
    If the attribute is to be 'inherit' its value is left null.
    The problem was with the default value taking priority when
    applying null to the attribute, so instead of null value a
    default one was applied.
    

Problem conclusion

  • new perm 'string setInherited(Attr__)' was introduced,
    returning error message if user doesn't have access to
    attribute or attribute is in deleted object.
