When deleting an OBS from the web pending changes are not applied.

If you move sub OBS elements out of a parent OBS element, and then delete the parent OBS element, the elements moved out are deleted as well, unless changes have been saved.


When an OBS containing sub OBS elements is deleted, a check should be performed for pending actions on those sub OBS elements.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. In P6 Web, go to Administrator.
2. OBS.
3. Move child OBS elements from parent.
4. Delete parent OBS element.
(At this point, if one were to exit the screen without saving, the Parent OBS element along with the child elements that were moved would disappear)
5. Hit Save.
6. The following error occurs: Failed saving OBS data
  a. If one were to move the child OBS elements, delete the parent OBS element, and then try to save, P6 will reject this attempt to save while deleting the parent OBS element.
  b. Additionally, if one were to cancel the changes, the deleted parent OBS does not recover most of the time. When the changes are canceled, the child OBS elements are deleted.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users can inadvertently lose child OBS elements.
