KB-1478 Objects referenced in the Users record are not listed as precedents

This issue has been resolved in an Appian hotfix/new Appian version. Please apply the latest hotfix to your Appian installation or upgrade to the latest version of Appian.


Designers are able to make customizations to the OOTB Users record in many ways. For example, user filters, record lists, record view details, record title, views, and related actions can all be configured to customize the record. When any of these configurations reference other Appian objects, those objects do not show as precedents of the record. The Users record is also not listed as a dependent of the referenced object. This applies to any Appian object, such as rules, constants, related actions, etc.  


This issue has been addressed via AN-94643 in Appian 18.1.


Upgrade to the latest version of Appian.
