The user is unable to update a field in the Workflow Activation Dialogue in Vault.
The affected field is hidden in the document properties of the document due to a Field Dependency Rule.
The affected field is controlled by a Field Dependency Rule that is set up in the Base Document type, which means that it applies to all document types. There is another Field Dependency Rule set up for a specific document type where the affected field is hidden. A document of that specific document type will not have a value set for the affected field since it is hidden by the Field Dependency Rule.
The solution is to define any Field Dependency Rules that involve the affected field in the specific document types that these rules are meant to be applied to. Field Dependency Rules should not be defined in the Base Document type if the affected field will be hidden for some document types.
