We are seeing an error in the app-ca.logs when making changes to the Action Item Object view (example, updating or removing a field from the view)

Error excerpt:

This issue is no longer reproducible in CA PPM 15.2 and higher. It does not appear to have any impact as changes are completed successfully.
