Problem:
Lookup OBS_BROWSE_FLT_INV_PRODUCT has an incorrect name of 'OBS Companies Filter Browse' and incorrect description. The correct name should be 'OBS Products Filter Browse' and the correct description should be 'List of OBS Units associated with Products (Filter)'.


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Admin Tool > Lookups
2.Enter 'OBS Companies' in the name field in the Filter Section to search for lookups
3.Click 'Filter' Button

Expected Result: I should only see 1 'OBS Companies Filter Browse' system-restricted lookup
Actual Result: But instead I see 2 'OBS Companies Filter Browse' system-restricted lookups

Applies to all supported PAS environments for CA Clarity PPM version 12.0, 12.1, 13.0, 13.1, 13.2, 13.3

Workaround:
The lookup with the ID = OBS_BROWSE_FLT_INV_PRODUCT has an incorrect name and description. This lookup should have the name 'OBS Products Filter Browse'. Ignore the name; look at the Lookup ID to determine the correct lookup to use.
