Saving a record before an auto-populated dot-walked form field is updated results in it getting wiped out in the original table.
Steps to Reproduce
- On the change form add another field from the 'cmdb_ci' table using 'Configure -> Form Layout'. For example: 'configuration item.description'
- Change the 'Configuration item' field, the description will be automatically updated as per the description of CI.
- Change the 'Configuration item' field again and save the record before the dot-walked 'Description' field is updated. The easiest way to achieve this is by modifying the 'Submit/Save' UI action to change the 'Configuration item' field before actually submitting the form.
- Navigate to the CI record, the description will be empty.
Remove the field from the form
