U4-4836 - backend allows me to delete a datatype that is used in a document type

Created by Rik Helsen 07 May 2014, 15:56:13 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 05:38:46

if i delete a datatype that is still associated with a document type, i'm allowed to do this. next when i try to modify the document type, the backend throws errors (see screenshot)

Ideally it should be prevented that i delete datatypes that are still in use, or at least get a warning. also it would be nice if the document type still loads.

Kind regards Rik

strangely enough, after some time this issue fixed itself. is it possible that this only happens for a while because of caching in the backend?

So the error in the screenshot was displayed for some time when i wanted to edit the documenttype, but then after 20 minutes everything was ok.
