This is a 1905 preview release issue. Engineering has already identified the root cause.


Since this requires a code change we don't have a workaround for this. The Engineering Team have confirmed that an emergency patch will be released after business hours on Friday 31st to permanently resolve this issue. However, customers are advised to do the data entry from Manage data page so that it does not become a showstopper for them and normal business processes will still continue.
