3235465 - Assessment question > * sign before variant number


When editing a question in an assessment, after sometime, the asterisk (*) mark appears before the variant number.

Reproducing the Issue

In the Learning Administration side:

  • Select ‘Content’ > ‘Assessments’ >
  • Search for an assessment >
  • Select the Locale >
  • On the label ‘Label.questionbuilder.VariantDisplayFormat’ where is written 'Variant 1 - Single Answer', there is a * sign on it.


The asterisk sign (*) indicates that the question was already applied in an assessment and it is related to some user data.


This is an expect behavior. It is not possible to delete the variant question after that, since it is related to a user record.
