E-AD: REQUIRED FIELD ON WORK RECORD SHOULD NOT APPEAR AS MANDATORY ON PAGE (Doc ID 2103504.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 04, 2016

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 

When making a field required on a derived/work record, the required validation will not trigger on the page where the field is used. This is because the work record is not a physical record and therefore saves no value in the database.

However, if the field is required, even if it is in a work record, it will still appear as mandatory on the page where it is being used, the same as a required field from a physical record. This can be confusing for the users as no validation is triggered for this field
