2964616 - The message 'Field was saved successfully' appears when updating List Values for an Extension Field, but the changes are not saved.


After updating the description of a value for a KUT list field, we click save then the message 'Field was saved successfully' appears. However, after the screen reloads the changes are not made as expected.
