Issue/Introduction

In the Project object, Attributes > First Year of Project Spend attribute, I am trying to change the Default value to 2021. After making the update and clicking Save, the Default reverts back to the former default value of 2015.

Removing the Default value doesn't change the result, the former default value of 2015 reappears.

Deactivating the current default value in the Year lookup only removes displaying the default value of 2015. There is no effect on trying to change the default value.

Environment

Release : 15.9.1, 15.9.2

Component : CA PPM SAAS STUDIO

Cause

SUMMARY: Cannot update a previously set Default Value on an attribute.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 
1- In Classic > Administration > Objects
2- Open the Project object
3- Create a new Lookup - Number attribute
4- For this defect, select "Year" as the lookup
5- Save a Default, for example 2019
6- Exit the Classic UI
7- Login and go to Classic > Administration > Objects, open the Project 
attribute. 
8- Put in a new value for the Default, i.e. 2021 and Save and Return
9- Close the project object and re-open it. Review the Default value
for the attribute.  It will have the old value of 2019

Expected Results: New Default value is updated on the attribute

Actual Results:  The old value remains
