Cause

  • Missing or invalid MDF configuration.

Resolution

  • To operate Manage Mass Change relies on Meta Data Framework (MDF) Picklists to be configured. These need to be both PRESENT and also CORRECT or you can run into this kind of error. The 1st screen shot above occurs when the Picklists are not present. The 2nd one occurs when the values are not exactly as they should be.

 

  • In Admin Tools / Configure Generic Object Definitions there should be 3 Picklists set up exactly as per below screen shots. Check this and if you see any anomaly you can correct and try to submit your Mass Change job again.
