Reproducing the Issue

  1. Implement a Custom UI for Position
  2. Navigate to Admin Center > Org Chart > Click on Position Org Chart
  3. Select a Position > Click on 'Show Position > Click on Edit >Select Effective Date > Click Proceed
  4. Attempt to Change data associated with this position (Such as cost center) > Select Save
  5. Receive Application Error


  • The Custom UI property type is a 'Form'.
  • For the position you attempted to edit, there are no values selected for the Matrix Relationship fields 'Type' and 'Related Position'.
  • This is currently being investigated by our Development Team in JIRA ECT-83429


  • This is currently under investigation by development.
  • There is no target fix for this scenario at this time, please reference this KBA for the future outcome of this scenario.

Workaround 1:

  • Edit the position, and add values for these two fields in addition to the other fields you are updating.  (In my example I updated 'Cost Center')

Workaround 2:

  • In the properties of the "Matrix Relationship" for the custom UI in Position use the layout type 'Grid' instead of 'Form'.

Workaround 3:

  • Use the pre-delivered Position Managment UI.
