Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a property.
  2. Expose the property from the Binary Large Object (BLOB).
  3. Set the value of the property based on the output of the decision table.
  4. Create a data transform to set the value of the property to null.
  5. Change the value of the property from null to a different value. Changed value displays on the Exposed column. The modified value does not display in the BLOB.
