3237988 - The Description Field Is Missing From 'Select Goal from the Library'


When adding Library Goal to goal plan, the fields displayed on the Select Goal from the Library screen do not follow the field mapping configuration in the goal plan. 

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

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Added "name", "desc", and "metric" fields in the <field-mapping> element in the goal plan XML
        <obj-library name="My Goal Library" id="100">
        <field-mapping src-library-field-id="name" dst-field-id="name"/>
        <field-mapping src-library-field-id="desc" dst-field-id="desc"/>
        <field-mapping src-library-field-id="metric" dst-field-id="metric"/>  
  2. Imported the Goal Library by uploading a CSV file which includes "name", "desc", and "metric" field values
  3. Adding a Library Goal only shows the values of 'name' and 'metric' on the ‘Select Goal from the Library’ screen. The "desc" field value can't be found
