Saving a constraint rule using a system attribute in a simple conditions gives the below error.

Error: Object '-1' of type 'CmAttribute' could not be found.

Below are steps to reproduce:

  1. On a site that is on 2017 R1 attempt to create a commerce rule.
  2. Use a system attribute in a simple condition and he error will be present when saving.

The rule is therefore unable to be saved. Using Main Document or Sub Document attributes works correctly.

If modifying an existing rule with system attribute in simple condition, the change cannot be saved due to the same error.


Site was upgraded to 2017 R1.
