Summary
Data Extension data retention period changes are not saving in Contact Builder

Repro
1. Navigate to Contact Builder > Data Extensions
2. Click on an existing DE with data retention policy defined and using a detention period of "After xxx days"
3. Click the Manage Policies button
4. For the Retention Period, modify the value to something different (eg. 5 instead of 6 days)
5. Click Save successfully

Expected result: The new setting is applied correctly to the DE.

Actual result: The new setting is not applied to the DE, it retains the original retention period value.

Workaround
Making the same change again and saving will correctly update the data retention policy.
