ACS Schema Explorer - Stored Procedure editing has bugs

Create a basic SQL stored procedure that modifys data.

Leave all default options.

Hit OK and procedure should be generated.

Now, go edit Stored procedure.

Click "Specify SET OPTION statement".

Click Modify.

Change default schema to a different schema. By default it should be "*NONE".

Hit OK. You should see DFTRDBCOL be populated with your schema.

Now hit OK.

You should get error:

"Debug mode and the debug view option in the SET OPTION statement cannot be specified together".

Problem is, you did not even specify that option!

Either IBM i is unable to read the proper option to set in the drop down box, or it is picking a very bad default option to populate in the "Debugging view" drop down.

Use Case:

Make stored procedure editing much easier in schema explorer. Frequent changes always run into this error unless you fix the improper debugging view selection that schema explorer is selecting.
