The MutableAssetData getAttributeData method returns null on Stage but works on Dev.

Below is the scenario:

Have a utility designed to update a page attribute with existing data from a page.

When running this utility on the dev server, it works properly as designed.

When running this utility on the stage server, see the following issue ...

First, a code snippet that demonstrates the issue:

Session ses = SessionFactory.getSession();
AssetDataManager adm = (AssetDataManager) ses.getManager( AssetDataManager.class.getName() );
AssetId id = new AssetIdImpl("Page", <AssetID>L);

for (MutableAssetData assetdata : adm.readForUpdate(Arrays.asList(id))) {

AttributeData testattrData = assetdata.getAttributeData("testattr");

if (testattrData == null) {
ics.StreamText("testattr is null
else {
ics.StreamText("testattr is not null

"testattr" is the page attribute that was published from dev to stage.

The output of this test program is as follows ...

On dev: testattrData Data is not null

On stage: testattrData Data is null

The servers are set up the same. The example page (asset id = <AssetID>) was also published from dev to stage.
