TCC: Unable To Remove A LUDS Element From A UDF To Make It Empty (Doc ID 2429315.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


An entity with a User-Defined Field of type LUDS (Large User Defined Selection)  on it initially has no value set for the UDF (User-Defined Field).  Later there is an import that 'sets the value', which really means the UDF now points to one of the elements of the list (LUDS).  After this it is then desired to 'reset' the UDF so that it again is 'empty' instead of pointing to the list element in the LUDS.  However an import that uses "Remove element from the collection" has error when it was attempted.

A Requisition Template has a UDF of type LUDS on it. In the data model the JobTemplate,JobInformation,[UDF] is initially empty. An import now sets the UDF to point to one of the LUDS list's elements (in the product the UDF is now 'populated' with the value of the list element).  After this, attempts to revert the UDF back to being 'empty' fail with import errors.

NOTE: Making a UDF of type LUDS be 'empty' so that it no longer points to one of the elements in the LUDS list is not the same thing as deleting a list element from the LUDS itself.  To delete a list element from a LUDS please see:  TCC: How to Delete UDSElement from User Defined Selection (LUDS) (Doc ID 2386099.1)
NOTE: This issue is for Requisition/Job Template entity.   For candidate entity, TCC can remove UDSElement From UDS To Make It Empty, via "Reset the collection" or "remove element from the collection".



 An empty UDF of type LUDs is set to one of the list elements in the LUDS.  Imports to try and revert the UDF to being empty again fail with errors.
