Here is the text of a new enhancement request I just submitted at ideas.automic.com:
PMPER-1993: AE DB Change should allow changing task pre- and post-conditions

The AE DB Change program (ucybchng) v11.2.2 added the ability to use the OBJECT_USE to update object references in task pre- and post-conditions. Previous versions of the AE DB Change program were incapable of changing pre- and post-conditions. We have long asked for a way to change task pre- and post-conditions using the AE DB Change program, so we were pleased by the improvement. However, it was not documented, and there was no way to specifically change only task pre- or post-conditions.

PRB00121222 was opened about this, and Automic Development decided to revert to the old behavior. This means that when we update to a newer version of the Automic Utilities, we will lose the ability to update object references in task pre- and post-conditions.

We would like to be able to update object references anywhere they appear in objects, including in task pre- and post-conditions. Ideally, we would like to be able to target these updates specifically, e.g., using new ucybchng keywords such as PRECOND and POSTCOND.
If you like this idea, please voice your support for it to Automic Product Management.
