RDE bug: date required when in template (but with no related fields populated)


As reported on the ArchivesSpace User list, there appears to be a bug with RDE which requires a date component whenever the related fields are visible, even if nothing is populated. See screen shot.

According to Christine, dates are not required, but this flag/issue should only happen when part of a date component is populated but another part is missing. If I create a template that suppresses date fields, I don't get this problem. However, it would be nice to resolve this issue so I can add or not add dates in the same template (I know, dates are better, but depending on the processing situation, it's not always feasible...)

Dev. Prioritization – we'll hold off on this and coordinate with the implementation of the SIEWG recs. On a quick test, it seems like it is red but doesn't stop the user from saving. It may not currently be an issue any longer?

We are putting this in the icebox, because if there is going to be a major overhaul of the RDE things might change. There is no need to fix this if there are going to be major changes to RDE.

This is such a tricky issue to replicate, which might be fixed already, that I think this ticket should close.

Won't Do
