2810406 - HomeAddress Field Label Changes for One Country Are Copied Over to Multiple Countries


When you change the label of a field for a specific Country in Home Address, the new label copies over to other Countries.

Reproducing the Issue

For example, if you change the label of field address2 for France, the fields for some countries, such as Germany (address1) and Spain (address1), etc. also update with the same label. In Manage Business Configuration, the labels of these fields for Germany and Spain did not change. But in the Data Model, the labels are actually changed.

1. Go to Manage Business Configuration > homeAddress > homeAddress_FRA 
2. Change the label of address2. Save your changes.


3. Go to any Employee's Profile and add a Home Address for France. 
4. Notice that the new label is being reflected. 
5. Change the Country to Germany or Spain. 



6. Notice that one of the fields shows as the same label as the field you changed for France.


This is identified as a code defect.


This was fixed in the b1908 release.
