Resolution

We need to do more configurations in Data Model. Please contact your Partner or raise an ticket to Cloud Product Support to add below code into your specific background-element.Here we take  <background-element id="languages"> as an example.

 

 <data-field id="documenturl" field-name="vfld2" required="true" url-link="true" max-length="4000" max-file-size-KB="1000">
      <label>Document</label>
    </data-field>
    <data-field id="documentName" field-name="vfld1" max-length="4000" max-file-size-KB="1000">
      <label>Document Description</label>
    </data-field>

 Example:

<background-element id="languages" type-id="11">
    <label>Language Skills</label>
    <label xml:lang="en-US">Language Skills</label>
    <data-field id="language" field-name="vfld1" required="true" max-length="4000" max-file-size-KB="1000">
      <label>Language</label>
      <label xml:lang="en-US">Language</label>
      <picklist id="language"/>
    </data-field>
       <data-field id="document" field-name="attachment1" url-link="true" max-length="999" document-type-id="CERTIFICATIONS" max-file-size-KB="1000" merge="false">
      <label>document</label>
    </data-field>
    <data-field id="documenturl" field-name="vfld2" required="true" url-link="true" max-length="4000" max-file-size-KB="1000">
      <label>Document</label>
    </data-field>
    <data-field id="documentName" field-name="vfld1" max-length="4000" max-file-size-KB="1000">
