This is a 1905 preview release issue. Engineering has already identified the root cause and we are working on the fix. Further details will be shared here as soon as have next substanitial update.


Since this requires a code change we don't have a workaround for this. However, customers are advised to do the data entry from Manage data page so that it does not become a showstopper for them and normal business processes will still continue.
