2936815 - Validation in preview pane

Symptom

Assume you have a validation for a field in the header and for a field in the preview pane. (The pane that opens upon selecting a particular record from the table)
Now, if you change the value for the field in the header, the validation seems to work. But if you perform same steps for the field in the preview pane, the validation does not work.

Environment

 SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Change the value for a field in the header (do not press Enter) and the validation works.
  2. Change the value for a field in the preview pane (do not press Enter) and the validation does not work.
  3. Now if you press Enter, the validation works.

Cause

This is a limitation for KUT validations when used on preview pane fields.

The data for preview pane fields is calculated based on current selected instance but the rule/validation is created on root data field - which does not have instance specific path in it. Therefore it does not work directly, like root level fields.

Once you press enter, the value is populated to root level and validation is respected correctly.

Resolution

This is a current limitation.
