Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Navigate to Admin Centre > Search for a user
  2. Scroll to the 'National ID' Portlet > Click 'Edit'
  3. Enter the Country, National ID Card Type, National ID and 'IS Primary' value
  4. Click 'Save' > Application Error occurs



This error is occurring as the user does not have a 'Gender' maintained in the Personal Information Portlet.

'National ID Validations' are enabled in the instance (in Company System and Logo Settings), and the Country for the National ID you are entering uses 'Gender' in the validation of the National ID. As the system cannot find a value for 'Gender', the validation cannot be performed and the system throws the error


To resolve the issue, you will need to maintain a value for 'Gender' in the Personal Information Portlet of the user you are entering the National ID for;

  1. Navigate to Admin Centre > Search for the user
  2. Scroll to 'Personal Information' > Click 'Edit'
  3. Select a value for 'Gender' field > Save

Alternatively you can disable 'National ID Validations', to do so;

  1. Navigate to Admin Centre > Company System and Logo Settings
  2. Search for 'National ID Validations' > uncheck the box
  3. Click 'Save Company System Setting'
