Changing dropdown of a required, single-select bi-directional relationship field leads to Pods error #5364

I have a bi-directional field set up between a Custom Post Type and a Custom Taxonomy.
The field settings on both Pods are set to:

  • required,
  • single select
  • drop down

The first time setting the field with the dropdown, all is fine.

But when I want to change the dropdown setting, on Save I get a Pods error stating:

"The [fieldname1] field is required and cannot be removed by the [fieldname2] field"

The error happens on both sides: when changing the field dropdown in the CPT post page and when changing the dropdown in the taxonomy term page.

I have this same error with multiple bi-directional fields in different CPTs/Custom taxomies.

See attached screenshots for error and call stack. And field settings in both pods.

The error is gone when I remove the 'required' setting from both Pods.

Pods Version

pods 2.7.12

WordPress Environment

wp 5.1.1
