2390427 - Custom-string to job code association not working


Global Job Profile to Global Job ID Association not working. Customer has a custom MDF object Global Job Profile, with one-to-one relationship to Global Job ID. The Job Profile should be filtered based on the Job ID chosen but the filtering does not work.


Employee Central : Association

Reproducing the Issue

When the internalId in the source field name is changed to mdfSystemInternalCode, the system throws an error – it’s okay. Upon correcting, and updating the job information for global job profile via History > Insert New Record, the dropdown is already filtered.
But when the page is refreshed or changed it via Take Action > Change Job Information, the dropdown still shows all the values.
It seems that the correct value is displayed only once and via History only.

Checking Associations:
Object Definition: Global Job Profile
