In DRTM configuration check, when standard element "Country" is mapped to any picklist, we need to make sure that the country in users info table is configured as an optionId.


How to confirm if your instance has completed MDF picklist migration:

  • The legacy Picklist Management tool is replaced by the new Picklist Center tool. If you have permission to manage picklists for your company, you can check which tool is available in Admin Center (see Check If Your Picklists Have Been Migrated).

To Find Option ID for legacy picklist:

  • Go to Admin Center -> Picklist Management -> Export all picklists.

To Find Option ID for MDF Migrated Picklist:

  • Select job type as “Export Picklist” and provide the information required to configure the job
  • Run the new created job to export picklists
  • Once the job completes, please go to the path configured in the job to get exported picklist, then you can get the optionId of the country.
