Issue:
We have several virtual attributes added to the Team object.  Some of those virtual attributes do not have a checkbox next to them, and thus are not able to be deleted.  Attributes that are impacted include:
  • Work Status (if the virtual attribute's Master Object is the Investment Object (but not Project Object))
  • Project Type and Project Category (Master Object is Project Object)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In PPM, go to Administration->Objects->Team->Attributes
2. Click on the New Virtual button
3. Select Master Object of Investment and click Filter
4. Check the Checkbox next to Work Status
5. Enter an Attribute Label and Attribute Id and click Finish
6. View the newly created Virtual Attribute from the attribute list

Expected Results: A checkbox is displayed next to the Virtual Attribute so it can be deleted
Actual Results: There is no check box next to the Virtual Attribute, so it can't be deleted
Cause:
This is caused by DE41595
Resolution:
This issue is tentatively planned to be fixed in CA PPM 15.5.1.
