Data Element Shows as a Required Field in uDesigner But not in UI (Doc ID 2863647.1)

Last updated on APRIL 20, 2022

Applies to:

Primavera Unifier - Version 21.12 to [Release 21.12]
Primavera Unifier Cloud Service - Version 21.12 to [Release 21.12]
Information in this document applies to any platform.



Data Element (DE) uuu_name is marked as required in the detail form of a Document type Business Process (BP). The asterisk shows in uDesigner; however, it does not show in the UI. Other DEs that are marked as required do show the asterisk in the UI. When sending the record, Unifier does treat the DE as required and pops up an error about required field if the DE is not populated.


The DE Name (uuu_name) should show an asterisk in the UI when it is configured to be required in uDesigner.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. In uDesigner, open BP log
  2. Open the BP in question
  3. If necessary, change status to draft
  4. Open detail form
  5. If necessary add DE uuu_name to form
  6. Set DE as required
  7. Save form
  8. Change BP status to complete
  9. Click on deploy
  10. Navigate to shell > Appropriate document type BP
  11. Click on create, then click on line item tab
  12. Notice the Name DE does not show a red asterisk.
