Table 2:

Table: Incident[incident]
Type: Choice
Column label: Location Building
Column name: u_location_building
Use dependent field: enabled
Dependent on filed: Location
Add 2-3 Choices with Dependent value of any two location as:
For "Alabama" sys_id= 8a3e85f037d0200044e0bfc8bcbe5d0d
For "Florida" sys_id= 8e3e85f037d0200044e0bfc8bcbe5d14

After you created these two fields, go back to list view and double click on Location Building field.

Expected Behavior: First it will force you to set "Location" if it is not set before and then it will ask for "Location Building".
Actual Behavior: It forces you to set "Location" even it is set before or not and it doesn't ask for "Location Building".
