2567509 - Text Fields Are Greyed Out In Language Adaptation

Symptom

When renaming fields in the Language Adaptation, some fields for the Target Text are greyed out and cannot be edited.

Environment

SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator workcenter.
  2. Open the Language Adaptation link.
  3. Open the Adaptation XYZ you want to edit (XYZ stands for a Language Adaptation that you have created; the texts from the text pool have been collected before).
  4. Go to the UI Texts facet.
  5. Click Edit.

Result: some fields in the Target Text column are greyed out.

Cause

The Texts need to be collected another time.

Resolution

  1. Go to the Administrator workcenter
  2. Open the Language Adaptation link.
  3. Open the language adaptation XYZ.
  4. Go to the Text Pool Selection facet.
  5. Click Collect Texts.

If, after several text collections, the Target Text field is still greyed out or read-only, either another administrator has created language adaptations or you previously created a language adaptation that already contains those field and the texts cannot be overwritten. When you hover over the text, a tool tip displays the name of the original text pool. This only applies to the UI texts and messages since code and report texts do not have locks.
