Environment

Reproducing the Issue

  3. Select  Product Specification XYZ (XYZ refers to PRS id)
  4. Select Edit

You observe that Product Specification Description cannot be edited.

Once the Product Specification is released you cannot change the description as the data is already being used in various business documents.  However, you have an option to manually change the status of Product Specification to 'Obsolete'.
