    When performing 3 way reconciliation via Developer Studio's 'View Differences with'-option, the tool does not report changes in the 'Dynamic Permission Inheritance' Form properties.

    Steps that would reproduce this issue:

    1. In ITSM 8.1, in the form properties of the 'HPD:Help Desk' form, set the 'Overlay Type' for the 'Other Definitions' section to 'Overwrite'
    3. Upgrade the environment to ITSM 9.1 (during this upgrade, the base layer 'Dynamic Permission Inheritance' form property for the 'HPD:Help Desk' form would get set to "112:60989 60900:60901")
    5. Using Developer Studio 9.1 in Best Practice Mode, connect to both the upgraded 9.1 server and the (pre upgrade) 8.1 server
    7. From the Form Object list in the 9.1 server, right-click the 'HPD:Help Desk' form and use the option 'View Difference with' and choose the 8.1 server as comparison
    Result: Developer Studio does not report that the new 9.1 base layer 'Dynamic Permission Inheritance' property is being masked by the 'Overwrite' overlay
