Symptom

  • Error Pop-up: The value country for Legacy Picklist ID is not unique, and it must be unique across all picklists. Enter a different value for Legacy Picklist ID.
  • LegacyPicklistId is editable property in MDF picklist .
  • Instance sync on picklists is no longer allowed if the combinations of external code and legacy picklist ID in source and target instances don't match.
  • Instance Sync Tool-  I'm unable to sync picklists between instances.

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • Metadata frameowrk (MDF)

Reproducing the Issue

1) Go to the Picklist Center.

2) Open and Edit a picklist (header).

3) Prior to 2005 release - The LegacyPicklistId is not an editable property of an MDF picklist as shown below:

Cause

2) Open and Edit the picklist (header).

3) Post 2005 release - The Legacy PicklistId is an editable property of an MDF picklist as shown below:
