Description Namita Soman 2012-04-10 08:30:48 EDT
Description of problem:
When a permission is edited, and Type switched, the attributes selected for previous Type are still selected, and update fails, if they are invalid for the new Type. But it should get deselected or not even listed if Type changes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a permission as Type - User Group, and choose "description" as an
2. Edit this permission, and change Type to be - Service. 
3. Scroll to bottom of attributes, and description is listed and checked. But description is not a valid attribute for Service. 
4. Click Update

Actual results:
when 'Update' is clicked - throws error -
attribute(s) "description" not allowed.

Expected results:
When Type is changed, attribute list should be refreshed and if still
applicable should be chosen. And if Type is reverted back, previously chosen
attributes should be back as chosen.
