2875182 - MDF Picklist - Updating a picklist value does not create a new version and how to create a new version


  • When a picklist is edited and a picklist value is modified (under Picklist center -> Versions -> Details), it does not create a new version of the picklist;
  • How to create a new version of the picklist values;


SAP SuccessFactors Metadata Framework (MDF)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Picklist Center;
  2. Find your picklist and click on it;
  3. Edit one of the version;
  4. Edit one of the picklist value;
  5. Save;

You will find that no new version has been created.


This is expected behavior, when the Picklist Value is changed/modified after clicking on one version, it is done on the same effective start date.

If you want to create a new version with a different effective date, you can refer to this link for help on inserting new version - Picklist Versions
