Issue with saving empty value in the user defined attribute in the CR Form.
Why do I have issues with saving empty value in the user defined attribute in the CR Form even though that attribute is specified as required in the workflow?
This is working as designed. There is an option to make fields required on your custom form, Required = . NULL is not an option at present. Custom enum fields have set default values, so inherently, all enum fields have a value already set and therefore are not equal to NULL. This satisfies the condition for "Required" fields.
It is allowable to create a custom value that is simply spaces, so it appears to be null, but there is really a value selected.
Borland currently have an open enhancement request to add NULL as an available option and this might be available in future versions of StarTeam.
