2019974 - Deleted attachment still displays for tasks of the same workflow process


You have defined a workflow process which has multiple steps inside of it. Within the tasks of this workflow process, users can add/delete attachments.

If a user deletes an attachment for one of the tasks inside of the process, this attachment may be still visible for other tasks from the same workflow.

Basically the UWL allows the end user to delete any attachments even though according to the backend workflow logic, some of the attachments should not be deleted by the end user.
