ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
When Importing an XER that contains OBS elements not in the target database, the OBS' are added rather than taking the OBS' from the EPS node the import was selected to go under.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
The Project and sub-elements take the OBS assignment of the EPS node in which it is being imported under.

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

  1. Import an XER containing OBS elements not already in the target DB
  2. Note that OBS elements are added rather than changed to the existing OBS under the EPS in which the Project was imported under
