Goal

Declared a required attribute on descriptive flexfield in the Purchase Order summary form in the lines description ('PO Lines' Descriptive Flexfield Segments).
These attributes are supposed to be required, however, having the attributes empty, the form allows the user to continue.
This case is not present with attributes declared on the same form in the header level ('PO Header' Descriptive Flexfield Segments)
where it is displayed a message informing that those attributes are supposed to be filled.

Why the system approves Purchase Orders having empty required attributes on descriptive flexfield?
