[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Default values not sticking?

You might check to see if the controlled value list for container type has a default value set.  If so, I think the value list defaults will override any resource record default settings you might have.

To check, go to System>Manage Controlled Value Lists>Container Type

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Default values not sticking?

I have a question about setting defaults; we are running 1.4.2 with the container management plugin.

When creating a blank resource, the Instances appear pre-populated with Child and Grandchild values. See screenshot called Instances1.

I logged in as Admin and set the defaults to be blank, and then saved, see screenshot Instances2.

Yet these two fields still auto-populate with Types and then will not allow you to save until you manually change them. Is this a bug  in setting defaults, or do the defaults not affect these particular fields? I searched and did not find these in the Controlled Value lists.

Thank you!
