Issue/Introduction

In 12.3.5, the "Array" setting is set on Checkbox field in promptset automatically once the prompt is editted and cannot be unchecked.

This can cause some errors depending on how the checkbox field is being used in the process tab(s) of an object and throw errors like:

U00021719 Syntax error in object '[JOB_NAME]', line '0050'. 'U01001339 Array '[CHECKBOX_VARIALBE_NAME]#' has been addressed without an index or missing the brackets [].'.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create a promptset
2) Add a checkbox field to the promptset - expand it and note that it has "Array" unchecked
3) Save and exit the promptset
4) Open the promptset back up and expand the checkbox field

Expected behavior:
"Array" setting remains unchecked

Actual behavior:
"Array" setting is checked
5) Uncheck "Array"
6) Save and close object
7) Open promptset back up and expand the checkbox field
"Array" still checked

Cause

This is caused by a defect in 12.3.5

Environment

Release : 12.3.5

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

This does not occur in 12.2.x or 12.3.4 or earlier

Resolution

This will be fixed in a future release.

Workaround: Edit or create promptsets in 12.3.4 or before or 12.2 or earlier release, export from that release and import into 12.3.5 system.  The promptset cannot be edited in 12.3.5 without this defect happening again.
