Symptoms

When assigning Attributes to an Asset, if the Asset is deleted via the Mass Transaction Manager, the rows in PS_ASSET_UD_ATTR will not be deleted. They are left on the system as orphan records.

Expected Behavior
---------------------------
Expect that all asset attributes will be deleted when the asset is deleted.

Steps
---------

1) Define asset attributes at Setup Financials/Supply Chain > Product Related > Asset Management > Physical Definitions > Define Asset Attribute
2) Add an asset via Basic Add.
3) Tab to Location/Comments/Attributes and assign the asset attributes in section Custom Attributes. Save the asset.
4) Navigate to Mass Transaction Manager and submit the Asset Deletion Mass Transaction to the delete the asset.
5) Navigate to Basic Add to pull up the asset. It cannot be found as it has been deleted.
6) Run the following SQL: Select * from ps_asset_ud_attr where asset_id = <'the asset id created and deleted above'>
