Error description

  • DOORS Documentation update: Link Attributes cannot be edited
    when Formal Module is accessed in Shareable Edit mode.
    
    Steps to replicate:
    ---------------------
    - Open module in Shareable Edit mode and lock an Object with
    in-link or out-link
    - Go to Link ? Edit Links
    - The details of all the links related to the Object are
    displayed
    - Select one of the in-links or out-links and click on Details
    - The Link Properties window is displayed with the link
    attribute details
    - Select an editable link attribute yet the Edit button is
    greyed out
    
    This is working as designed.
    
    Currently the documentation under 'Creating link attributes'
    states 'You must have create and modify access to the link
    module to create link attributes'. However, its not mentioned
    that Link Attributes cannot be edited when the Formal Modules
    are being accessed in Shareable Edit Mode. This information
    needs to be updated into the documentation.
