2371288 - Uploading List values for Extension Fields Result in Replacing Existing List Values


When a Key-User tried to upload List Values for a KUT Extension Field, the new upload replaces all values present in previously.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the concerned work center.
  2. Open an instance of the object.
  3. Go to Adapt button and Edit Master Layout.
  4. Right click over the concerned Extension Field.
  5. Then on the Adaptation Pane Select Edit button (If you do not find the edit button click "←" on the adaptation Pane to go one step back post which you shall find the edit button).
  6. Under the List Values section, notice there are X number of records.
  7. Select Upload button.
  8. Select the list file in .csv format and upload.
  9. Select the Save button.

When the field definition is opened again. Notice that the X number of records have been replaced by the list that was present in the recent .csv file uploaded.


This is system behavior.


For appending/modifying list values of drop-down type extension fields, use Download button under the List Values section of Field Definition. Use the same file to add more records or modify existing one, then use Upload button to import them.
