Error description

  • You can not clear suspect link from a baseline.
    
    Step to produce:
    
    - Create a source and target modules
    - Baseline the target module
    - Create couple of links from the Current version of Source to
    Baseline version of target module
    - Make couple of changes in the linked objects in Current
    version, create the suspect link column in the Baseline version
    - Now clear all Suspect for Current module by going  Analysis >
    Suspect Links > Clear All
    - The Baseline version would still show up the Suspect link
    details.
    - The Analysis > Suspect Links > Clear/Clear All option is
    grayed out in the Baseline.
    - This would be expected as, Baselines are always in Read-only
    mode. And you can not open them for edit.
    
    
    However DOORS Help Manual does not mention of any limitation of
    unable to clear suspect links from a baseline version.
