2758276 - Visible Property Of Field Is Greyed Out


You have set the Mandatory property of a given field to be controlled by a rule, so in certain scenarios it will become true, and after that the Visible property of the same field has become greyed out and you can no longer control it.


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

If a field has the possibility of becoming mandatory it must be visible, so you can't control visibility as this would cause logic issues and a field could become mandatory and invisible, hence preventing you from saving a document.


This is the standard behavior of the system.
