Symptoms

When sending a web service call for "updateShell" the only elements that should be required in the call are the Project/Shell number and the field that is being updated.  However, somewhere between version 15.1 and 15.2.9.0 this requirement changed, and additional Data elements in the Integration form were required to make the WS call work.  The Integration Interface guide actually indicated that all FORM Data elements needed to be included in the call, making it more time consuming to create the XML calls.

The following is received when all FORM Data Elements are not included:

Error 505: Null is Required
