Issue/Introduction

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Studio > Objects
2. Create a subobject for the Company object (it happens to all subobjects regardless of Master Object) called subcompany
3. Home > Financial Management > Companies
4. Create a Company: Broadcom
5. Create a subobject instance 
6. On the properties tab go to Access to this object > OBS Unit
7. Add the exit and view rights over an OBS Unit
 
8. XOG read the instance using the custom_object_instances_read.xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_read.xsd">
  <Header version="8.0" action="read" objectType="customObjectInstance" externalSource="NIKU"/>
  <CustomObjectInstanceQuery>
    <Filter name="objectCode" criteria="EQUALS">subcompany</Filter>
    <Filter name="instanceCode" criteria="OR">sub1</Filter>
  </CustomObjectInstanceQuery>
</NikuDataBus>

9. Check the output (OBS Unit level access rights have been XOGed out)

<NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_customObjectInstance.xsd"><Header action="write" externalSource="NIKU" objectType="customObjectInstance" version="15.6.1.265"/><customObjectInstances objectCode="subcompany"><instance instanceCode="sub1" objectCode="subcompany" parentInstanceCode="BCMLT" parentObjectCode="company"><CustomInformation><ColumnValue name="odf_parent_id">5000000</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="partition_code">NIKU.ROOT</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="name">sub1</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="odf_cncrt_parent_id">5000000</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="code">sub1</ColumnValue></CustomInformation><OBSAssocs complete="false"/><Security><OBSSecurity name="Organizational" rightCode="odf_cst_subcompany_edit" rightMode="OBS_UNIT_AND_CHILDREN" typeCode="organizational" unitPath="/All Groups"/><OBSSecurity name="Organizational" rightCode="odf_cst_subcompany_view" rightMode="OBS_UNIT_AND_CHILDREN" typeCode="organizational" unitPath="/All Groups"/><UserSecurity rightCode="odf_cst_subcompany_edit" userName="admin"/></Security></instance></customObjectInstances><XOGOutput> <Object type="customObjectInstances"/> <Status state="SUCCESS"/> <Statistics insertedRecords="0" failureRecords="0" totalNumberOfRecords="1" updatedRecords="0"/> <Records/> </XOGOutput></NikuDataBus>

10. Add the Security complete = “true” tag

<NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_customObjectInstance.xsd"><Header action="write" externalSource="NIKU" objectType="customObjectInstance" version="15.6.1.265"/><customObjectInstances objectCode="subcompany"><instance instanceCode="sub1" objectCode="subcompany" parentInstanceCode="BCMLT" parentObjectCode="company"><CustomInformation><ColumnValue name="odf_parent_id">5000000</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="partition_code">NIKU.ROOT</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="name">sub1</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="odf_cncrt_parent_id">5000000</ColumnValue><ColumnValue name="code">sub1</ColumnValue></CustomInformation><OBSAssocs complete="false"/><Security complete ="true"><OBSSecurity name="Organizational" rightCode="odf_cst_subcompany_edit" rightMode="OBS_UNIT_AND_CHILDREN" typeCode="organizational" unitPath="/All Groups"/><OBSSecurity name="Organizational" rightCode="odf_cst_subcompany_view" rightMode="OBS_UNIT_AND_CHILDREN" typeCode="organizational" unitPath="/All Groups"/><UserSecurity rightCode="odf_cst_subcompany_edit" userName="admin"/></Security></instance></customObjectInstances><XOGOutput> <Object type="customObjectInstances"/> <Status state="SUCCESS"/> <Statistics insertedRecords="0" failureRecords="0" totalNumberOfRecords="1" updatedRecords="0"/> <Records/> </XOGOutput></NikuDataBus>

Expected results: The OBS Unit access rights to remain. If new rights are present on the xml file, those to be added and non specified ones to be removed
Actual results: The OBS Unit rights present in the UI are deleted and no right is added as per the xml file.
