Validation from data policy does not work if you are using a guided task board on a parent table and the data policy is looking at a field from a child table.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. On a base system instance, navigate to Incident > Open.
  2. Open any incident record.
  3. Right-click in the form header and select Configure > Form Layout.
  4. In Create new field, create a field named Test style and add the field to the form.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click Close.
  7. Navigate to System Policy > Data Policies.
  8. Click New.
  9. Create a data policy on the incident table using the field you created in step 4.
    • Table: Incident
    • Condition:
      • [State] [is] [Closed] or [State] [is] [Resolved]
      • and [Test Style] [is] [Mandatory]
  10. Click Submit.
  11. In the Application Navigator, type task.list in the Filter navigator text box and press return or enter on your keyboard.
  12. Filter the list to show [Task Type] [is] [Incident].
  13. Click Run.
  14. Right-click on the column header State and select Show Visual Task Board.
  15. Move an incident card to a Resolved or Closed state.
    Note that the move fails and, in Geneva, you do not receive the popup message from the data policy.
