    Below are addtional comments from Ron re the RFE - so we have a complete picture of the requirements:

    In conversation with Raiko, there were a few items that suggested it may be best not to rush the fix:

    1. Your regression identified some inconsistent behavior in error reporting with the fix

    2. Idea MDMSEAE-I-126 “Allow Owner and Giver to reside in different CIFs” should properly be viewed as a co-requisite

    So we agreed to pursue the ENFORCEMENT_TYPE work-around to allow IBM time to solve appropriately. I was given to understand at the time that the fully supported fix would be available in a point release some time in ’21.

    With the work-around we know are missing a referential integrity constraint - which we believe our current code fully mitigates – but we’re concerned we may be missing some (present or future) support from MDM, for example when a party becomes inactive, or is collapsed.

    RBC has decided not to go with the iFix, but rather use our proposed workaround using Enforcement type 2 (external profiles, no id checking).
