Reproducing the Issue

Navigate to Object definition---->Employee Time--->Make any change--->Save it.


"workflowInitiatedBy Admin" and "mdfSystemOptimisticLockID"  are 2 fields added to employee time object in 1702 .This was added via a migration during the release.Migration failed in all instances with following configuration

onSave rule with a logic to throw error message.

Logic to display error message should be configured as a take rule and not as an onSave rule in Employee Time.


Step 1:

Open all onSave rules in Employee time object definition

Check whether any rule has a logic throwing error message.If so change it to a Warning message.This must be done in all records inside the rule.

Step 2:

Provisioning ---->manage schedule jobs--->Search the job type "MDF Object definition to Db sync"--->Run the job. Not required to create new job.Just run the existing job


Create a suport ticket to run the job mentioned in step 2
