When trying to remove a Lifecycle from a Document Type, an error occurs: Unable to save changes for the following reasons: A lifecycle removed from this doc type is currently used in a dependency rule.
The error message occurs when the Document Type inherits this Lifecycle from the Base Document Type, and there are field dependencies that reference states in the Lifecycle on the Base Document Type.
To resolve this error, do the following:
- Remove field dependencies first.
- Update the Lifecycle on that new Document Type again.
- Once the Lifecycle is updated, the field dependencies can be placed back on the Base Document Type.
