NCDA auto extension with NCIE

Did you know, if you’ll┬ápass NCIE (DP or SAN) AND you still have not expired yet NCDA, you automatically get certification extension (from higher-level certification) for NCDA with the same dates as NCIE?

To check:

In my case, both NCDA ONTAP & NCIE SAN ONTAP get 2018-Oct-23:
