2453207 - B1702 Fields and Porltlets Not Working as expected, ignoring 'required' or 'visibility' properties.


• Fields not behaving as configured (visibility, required)
 • onInit Rules not triggering
 • Rules not working as expected


The below example is taken for Personal Information but can impact any element.
This issue is occurring due the enablement on the "personInfo_employee" node in Manage Business Configuration:


The system does not expect a separate node for "employee" to appear in BCUI with "employee" type, as "employee" should be the parent node. The correct configuration is to have a standard layout for personalInfo (which would be displayed for employees) and a custom node only for dependents.

Prior to b1702 enabling this redundant node, did not cause issue. A code change in the b1702 release requires this configuration issue to be corrected.
