2899566 - Receiving "Invalid Group Detected" when editing permission groups

Symptom

A standard element was added in the dg-filter tag and it is causing the other filters to not work

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

1. Export Data Model

2. Add any standard Element field inside the dg-filter.

Example

<dg-filters>
    <permission-group-filter>
      <standard-element-ref refid="custom01"/>
      <hris-element-ref refid="jobInfo">
        <hris-field-ref refid="job-code"/>
        <hris-field-ref refid="employee-class"/>
        <hris-field-ref refid="department"/>
        <hris-field-ref refid="division"/>
...

3. Save data model
4. Go to Admin center -> manage permission groups -> select any permission group -> no users are listed
5. if you click on the active members, you get pop "invalid group detected"

"The filter specification of this group cannot be restored. This can be caused by a new data model or internal changes.Please delete this group and re-create it."

Resolution

Delete this line "<standard-element-ref refid="custom01"/>" in '<permission-group-filter>' under '<dg-filters>'. Then, re-import the data model. This will make the default standard filters to work.

If in the event that you need to add a standard element in dg-filter, create a new tag and close the element using </my-filter> tag

Example:

<dg-filter>

  <my-filter>

     <standard-element-ref refid="custom01"/>

 </my-filter>
