    This was introduced around DOORS 7.1 release, and was there
    undetected/unreported since then
    

Problem conclusion

  • When purging objects their parents were notified to keep
    data updated. This also involved setting 'Last Modified
    By/On' attributes. Upon request this behavior was disabled
