2290681 - Error When Trying to Set a Field Mandatory in BCUI - EC


When trying to set a field, say Gender, as mandatory in Manage Business Configuration the below error is displayed:

Field gender is mapped to the required element gender in the profile. An enabled field of a HRIS Element must not be mapped to a mandatory standard element. Set the standard element to not mandatory or disable the field gender.
