Issue/Introduction

I have got an attribute in Clarity which is set as Enter Once.

However, when I open a project in OWB, I can update the attribute value and save it back to Clarity.

In Clarity the field is read-only and can not be updated.

Why does OWB allow me to change the attribute value?

 

Cause

The 'Enter Once' flag is tied to an object view, not an attribute. Because of this design, a XOG, process [BPM] or any other access at the object level has no constraint on changing an such an attribute.

Resolution

There is no workaround to prevent a read-only field to be over-written

The same occurs with attributes locked by a process. The data can be over-written. (articleId=213874)

This was analyzed with Engineering through:
