On Primavera Gateway when attempting to change a User Defined Field (UDF) name on a field mapping template for an Activity in a Unifier to P6 synchronization the following error occurs:

Indicate a unique name for the new field

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

  1. In a field mapping template for Activity adding new UDF's is successful.
  2. Delete the existing field mapping using following navigation- Configuration-Customization-Field mapping Templates-Field Mapping Name-Activity- all field mappings related to Activity using P6 and Unifier.
  3. Try to change UDF names from synchronization using capital letter (instead of Text, the modification should be TEXT)
  4. Receive the error message mentioned above.

Due to this issue, users cannot change the UDF field names from the Unifier to P6 synchronization successfully.
