Symptoms

Automatic selection for single item in the Value List – FAILS for Dependent Drop Downs.

Below is the property in "<UIM-HOME>/config/characteristics.properties" used for auto selecting the element in drop-down characteristic when there in only one element exists.
By default the value is set as false, to enable this the property value should be changed to true.
uim.characteristic.dropdown.autoselect.singleelementexists.enabled=true

Scenario 1: The automatic selection works for the first level entity link characteristic: if a single value in the list is returned it is also automatically selected. However if we have a second entity link characteristic dependent on the first level entity link, there are no values populated in the drop-down even if there should be a list of values returned. When the functionality is disabled (uim.characteristic.dropdown.autoselect.singleelementexists.enabled=false) this second entity link characteristic field gets populated with values when also a value is manually selected for the first level entity link characteristic.

Scenario 2: There are 2 entity link characteristics on the specification and the second characteristic is dependent on the first entity link characteristic. After manually selecting a value for the first entity link characteristic (the list contains multiple values) -> the second entity link characteristic will load a single value in its list, however that single value is not automatically selected. The “Automatic selection for single item in the Value List” functionality should work for an unlimited number of dependent entities link characteristics.
