Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
Find that if there is a Mandatory field defined in the Extract, and this is not entered for the employee, then all the details for that employee related to the block where the mandatory field is defined is shown as blank.

For example, if I mark middle name in HR Block as required, so for those who don't have a middle name, the entire HR Block will be blank in the XML output.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect the other fields in the block to still show.


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

For example mark middle name in HR Block as required -

1. Middle Name defined in the HR Block
>Manage Extract Definition
>HR Records >HR Details
  >Extract attributes >Middle Name
2. Middle Name is marked as Required, which means it is mandatory

3. Submit The Process with parameters
>Submit a Process or Report >Flow Pattern >xxxxextract.V0.04

4. Download the output file

5. In the output, the HR Block is blank for the employee who doesn’t have a middle name
<HR_Records_Data/> ie there are no detailed records here, the section is blank
