2450525 - Library not assigning to expected goal category

Symptom

When I select a goal or objective from my library, it is not being assigned to the category of the same name

Environment

Goal Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Goals
  2. Add a New Goal
  3. Select Library Goal
  4. Choose your goals from the list
  5. Notice that they are not assigned to the category of the same name

Cause

Problem is the library csv file is trying to link to the goal categories by the category name rather than the category ID. 

Resolution

Try using the category ID to change the library csv file to resolve the problem.  Category ID is listed in the goal plan XML template, this information can be provided to you by support or a partner.  Do NOT try changing the category ID listed in the goal plan XML template, this could causing existing goals to disapear or move to the default category.
