Circumstanced decision table does not call base table



A circumstanced decision table is configured to call the base table if no conditions are met on the circumstances version. When the circumstanced table is called, it never calls the base table.

Steps to Reproduce

2. In the circumstanced rule, select the Call base decision check box in the otherwise clause.
