|Applies To||RSA Product Set: Archer|
RSA Version/Condition: All
Product Description: Archer Platform
|Issue||After editing a field configuration to make it required, previously existing records that did not have an entry for that field can be edited and saved without adding an entry for the field. No error or warning message is displayed.|
|Cause||Even though you open a record in Edit mode and click Save, Archer does not actually execute a record save action if no data has been changed in the record. Since the record save action is not performed, the required field is not evaluated.|
On the other hand, if you were to open the record in Edit mode, enter or change data in any field, and then click Save, the required field would be evaluated as part of the record save process and you would see an error message telling you that the required field has not been entered.
RSA Archer Product Management has previously evaluated whether this is how the application should work, and they have confirmed that it is working as intended. This was confirmed under the following engineering ticket:
"Save is allowed with blank required fields"
|Resolution||Working as intended.|
