2984987 - Mandatory association not validating saving MDF object

Symptom

You have defined on Configuration UI that Parent Position is a required field, however when creating or editing a position the system does not validate if thi field is filled or not.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Cause

Fields in the "composite" or "valid when" association on object definitions by default are not mandatory (this is for all MDF objects).

Resolution

To make the field really Mandatory you need to set the Association as Mandatory:

  1. Go on Configure Object Definitions (Position is used in my example)
  2. Go down the page on Association details
  3. Set it as Required = Yes.
  4. Save it.
