When a user with admin or a user with sn_hr.basic role tries to update short description (or any other field to which they have write access), saving or updating the form does not reflect the changes made.
Any supported release
Restricted Caller Access for the Update and Save UI Actions for Short Description field on sn_hr_core_case table with Status as Invalidated
Change the Status from Invalidated to Allowed
Updating from list doesn't go through these UI actions restrictions. So the issue does not happen from list view.
