2718804 - How “department ” , “location ” ,” division” field will behave once transferred into an object field from enum .


How “department ” , “location ” ,” division”  field will behave once these fields are updated as a object field from enum.

Reproducing the Issue

1. In the requisition template department , division ,location was configured as an enum field . 
 2. adding new object type fields having field id  “department_obj” , “location_obj ” ,” division_obj” . 
 3. upload the requisition tempalte and save. 
 4. Now we want to copy the values from old field to newly created object field .


Old and new requisitions will contain two fields one is “enum” and another one is object . Customer can hide the old fields by controlling the permission in the requisition template. However we don’t have any option or configuration settings to copy the old “enum” values into the newly created “object” field .
