If you try to retire a contract that has a change order or invoice, the system should consider it, provide some logic to it, and/or provide a notification that you can’t retire it. The same should apply when you try to retire a change order that has other change orders or invoices associated to it.
The standard contract record that is in a Completed state cannot be retired if it has pending standard contract change orders or contract invoices associated to it. (The expectation was that the associated records would also be retired, or if not, a notification stating that they would not be retired.) Moving forward, the issue has been resolved by displaying an Attention message to the user that the standard contract cannot be retired because of the pending change orders or contract invoices. Also, the Retire and Delete actions on the change order form have been removed, so the user will not be able to retire the change order.
