Is it possible to move an IBM TRIRIGA record to the NULL transition state, even it is linked to other records? We need to check if there is a way to move an IBM TRIRIGA record to the NULL transition state, even if this record is linked to other records: groups, licenses, requests, tasks, buildings, etc.
If there is any action performed against a record with NULL transition state, the record is moved out of this initial transition state value. When a record is first created, it is created in a special transition state called NULL. Records in the NULL transition state change immediately to another transition state value after any operation that currently uses the record is performed. All of the available options in the transition Action list for a record with the NULL transition state value are actions that transition records out of the NULL transition state. There is no way to return a record to the initial NULL transition state at all.
Since any action will move these records out of the NULL transition state, there is no way to have dependent records under such circumstances. NULL transitional records have no linked records, so no dependent or parent records. If a record is in the NULL transition state, and it is then marked to be deleted, there is no way it has dependent records, so no orphan records will be left. Finally, the IBM TRIRIGA cleanup (maintenance) process would take care of any orphan records in the system.
