2541909 - Job Info: How to configure the Event Reason (event-reason)


The Event Reason field is by default, hard-coded to be part of the Job Information configuration, although by default it is not defined in the Succession Data Model.

In the 1711 release this functionality was extended to support the configuration of the "event-reason" field in the Data Model configuration. This behaviour change was made to prevent the field from displaying twice in the UI when defined in the configuration.

If you require to manage the label translations of the "event-reason" field or to add onChange rules to the Event Reason field, then it must be defined in the configuration.
