A Pull-down Data Element which has a value setup to default in the data definition does not become the default value on a form as expected.
Data Element Name: User Category
Data Definition Name: User Category
Data Definition Data Set:
|2||key user||Key User||Active|
|3||core team||Core Team||Active|
After adding the Data Element to the User Attributes form and creating a new user, the User Category field on the user creation form should display the 'user' value by default.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create the same DD as mentioned above.
2. Create a new DE with the new DD.
- DD Name: User Category
- DE Name: UserCategory
3. Add to User Attributes form -> Complete/Deploy the design.
4. Company Workspace -> User Administration -> Company Users -> New
Result: the Pull Down field does NOT default to the value that it should.
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, when new users are created, the default value for 'User Category' is not displayed and users have to manually choose the value using the drop-down.
