Checkbox Verification Mechanism

The system implements a verification process during the creation or modification of a relationship based on the designated Relationship RoleCode. However, this verification does not occur during the flag toggling process within Business Configuration.

Backend Validation

Once the aforementioned flag/checkbox is activated, the backend validation comes into force. Any violations post-activation will prompt the system to trigger an error message.

Resolution of Pre-existing Data Issues

In order to resolve issues of duplicate relationships with pre-existing data, it is suggested to delete the current relationship.
