Employee Central: Metadata Framework


Visibility of the field "defaultValue" in the object "GoLocalizedData" is set to "Not Visible".



Navigate to Admin Center - Configure Object Definitions - Select the object GOLocalizedData - Change Visibility of the field defaultValue to Editable.


This should resolve the issue.


Please refer to Guide: Implementing the Metadata Framework (MDF)
