Environment

BizX Platform

Reproducing the Issue

  • dg-filter not in use in the data model
  • Label left empty for some standard element for the local language
  • In "Manage permission groups" select a group and pick a category will show some blank labels

Cause

  • When using dynamic groups, if dg-filters is not in use in the Data Model, all field categories will be available in the picklist. If some standard element of the local language in the Data Model have an empty label, then this will result in a blank label listed in the picklist of the dynamic group. For example:

<standard-element id="custom09" max-length="255" required="false" matrix-filter="false">
<label xml:lang="en-US"></label>
<label xml:lang="en-GB"></label>
<label xml:lang="de-DE"></label>
<label xml:lang="it-IT"></label>

Resolution

  1. Add a label for the local language of those standard element if in use or
  2. Use "dg-filter" in order to include only what is needed to appear in the picklist for the dynamic group

<dg-filters>

<permission-group-filter>

<standard-element-ref refid="custom09"/>
<standard-element-ref refid="dateOfBirth"/>
...
...

</permission-group-filter>

</dg-filters>
