  • This behavior changes were applied in 1511. After b1511 there is no separate permission for alternate name fields (First Name, Middle Name and Last Name). They will have the same permission that is given to their parent fields. 
  • For example if a user has permission for first name field, he/she will have the permission to first-name-alt1 and first-name-alt2.
  • The alternate fields names are removed from the RBP page.


This is the expected behavior since b1511 release.
