Unable to add a new flex family member into an Asset Association (named association) that is configured to accept ANY Child Asset type.


1. Use FirstSiteII site and Content flex family.

2. Create an asset association - SupportAssoc (Exists, multivalue, some Content Definition, any child asset type) - for Content_C asset type.

3. Add branches to the Content flex family so it becomes:

 - Content_A
    - Content_PD
       - Content_CD
          - Content_P
             - Content_C
    - ContentSupport_PD (new)
       - ContentSupport_FD (new)
          - ContentSupport_P (new)
             - ContentSupport_C (new)
    - Content_F

4. Create a ContentSupport_FD (no attr, pd, or filter selected), and create a ContentSupport_C using this ContentSupport_FD created.

5. Try creating a Content_C asset; in the SupportAssoc asset association try to add the ContentSupport_C asset, got the following error:

The selection must be one of the following types:
The selection of type (ContentSupport_C) is invalid.

Next to SupportAssoc the tooltip shows: 

Asset Types: CGGadget, CGPoll, CGWidget, Content_C, Content_P, ContentQuery, Device, DeviceGroup, Dimension, Document_C, Document_P, Media_C, Media_P, Page, PageFilter, Product_C, Product_P, Query, AdvCols, FSIIVisitor, FSIIVisitorParent, StyleSheet
Subtypes: Any
Multiple: true



New branches (_PD, _P, _CD, and _C) are added into an existing flex family.
