When right clicking a device and selecting the add to Global Collection function dynamic Global Collections that device is in not showing under “member of” they are displayed under “is not a member of” – Why is this

Environment

Resolution

There are two types of relation while adding a device in to a Global Collection (GC). One is dynamicGlobalCollects and the other is staticGlobalCollects. Both will have its own relationID to differentiate each other as below, 

dynamicGlobalCollects 0x1003a 
staticGlobalCollects 0x1003b 

In Spectrum we are creating the "Is a member of" list based on relation ID which is static (0x1003b) and we don’t consider the dynamic (0x1003a) relationID. 

Based on the current behavior, Spectrum is functioning as designed and this may be restricted for dynamic relations as it is rule based and can be changed at any point in time. This the current architecture of GC design.
