2399902 - ValText is stored instead of ValKey for attributes with value help


  • Value Help with table mxi_AttrValueHelp is defined for an attribute.
  • After modifying this attribute value from Identity Management User Interface(IDM web UI), the value in ValText of table mxi_AttrValueHelp is stored as attribute value in DB. While it should be ValKey to be stored. This can be verified by checking DB view idmv_value_basic_all or idmv_vallink_ext for the user entry.
  • When provisioning such user to target system, the above attribute value may cause errors. For example, the target system is AS ABAP.
