2854027 - Token used in a validation error on a Data Capture Form not pulling the field label


A label translation was created for the 'tcConfirmIsInvalid' resource key in CSB. But when you enter incorrect information in one of the fields on the data capture form, the error validation message does not pull the correct label for the field in the error message. For example:

"The {0} field is not valid" instead of "The 'Mobile' field is not valid"

As you can see in the second message, the problem field is specified in the error message.

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

There are no labels actually configured on the Data Capture Form. Instead, there is ghost text in the fields which will not be pulled into the token in the error message


  1. Enter Career Site Builder
  2. Go to 'Data Capture Forms'
  3. Select a locale and go to the 'Details' tab
  4. Here, you can change Label Type 'ghost text' to 'Label' or 'Both'
