2633651 - Default labels are not getting updated - Employee Central


When an MDF's label is changed, the default label is not getting updated automatically.

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Admin Center -> Manage Data.
  2. Search and open an existing Position.
  3. Click on the Globe icon for the "Position Name" field to see the Default Value.

  4. Change the Position Name to "TEST LABEL".
  5. Click on the Globe icon to see that the Default Value has not changed.


This is an expected behavior. In current MDF build, the Default Value gets the value when the object is created from Manage Data for the first time. Next time onwards, whenever the label is changed, it does not sync to Default Value. The reason is that the logged in user may login the system with any language option and change the label as per that language. If the Default Value should be changed, then it must be done manually just like it's done for any other translation.
