Reproducing the Issue

  2. Click on Adapt.
  3. Click Edit Master Layout.
  4. Hover over the PDI field and click on Change Properties.

You see that below shown Field Definition will be missing in popup for PDI fields.



From 1805 release Field Definition will be available only for extension fields. Basic idea is to restrict further usage of PDI fields and to avoid technical inconsistencies.


To work on a PDI field use the Cloud Application Studio.
