Why is the preconditon "Require-Work-Item-to-Match-Query" not inherited properly by child project areas

Bob Ferguson (89631) | asked May 01 '19, 11:41 a.m.
 I am currently using RTC 6.0.5.
I read the following question on Jazz forum:
In this question it states that this precondition should now work.  It was to be fixed in 6.0.1 sprint 5.
I tried it and it does not seem to be working.  The following were the steps I did:

1. In the parent process area I created a query "Find WI Type Task".
2. I shared that query so that it now resides in the Predefined Queries of the shared process area.  The shared process area was the only process area I could select when I shared it.
3. In the shared process area I went to the Deliver (server) in Operations Behavior and in the Everyone column I added the precondition require Work Items to Match Query.
4 I then selected the Find WI Type Task as my query.
5. I applied the changes and save the process work area.

I then went to the work space of a project using my shared process area and made changes.
I then, via pending changes, checked in and delivered my changes.
I selected to create a work item to be associated and the type was defect.
The check in and delivery were successful.

Did I forget a step or do something incorrectly?

What values did you pick for:
"Work items from other project areas are:"
"When query is from a different project area:"

The value I picked for "Work items from other project areas are" was "Allowed"
The value I picked for "When query is from a different project area" was "Run Query normally".
I change the value from Run Query normally to Run query in this project area and it now works.   Thanks
