When using the script function GET_PARENT_NAME(RunID, [Actvation Type]) the correct value for the input  parameter Activation Type is not verified.
 
According to the documentation, allowed values for the Activation Type are either ACT (Activator) or PRC (Processor).
However, every other 3 letter code (e.g.: BLA, KUT, UC4,HUR,…) can also be entered without any error.
 
Expected:  An error message is displayed if there is an incorrect input value for "Activation Type" .
Actual: No error message is displayed when an incorrect input value is used for "Activation Type".
