2494461 - Unable to edit and save Changes to Positions


We are getting an application error every time we try to edit a position. This only occurs when editing positions, not during the creation of a position


Employee Central – Position Management

Employee Central – MDF

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Admin Centre > Manage Positions
  2. Choose any Position > Edit any field
  3. Click Save 


The MDF cache needs to be refreshed


To clear the Metadata cache:

Admin Centre > OData API Metadata Refresh and Export > Refresh Metadata Cache

If this is not a visible option in admin centre, then you will need to permission it via RBP

The tool is found under the permission category Manage Integration Tools
