3245398 - MDF Approval Cards are not reflecting the updated labels and translations from MDF Object Definition


In Latest Home Page, for the existing approval cards from MDF objects, the labels changed or translations configured in the labels inside of the Object Definition are not applied in the home page. When a new card is generated, the labels and translations are showing fine.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • Metadata Framework (MDF)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a MDF Object Definition with a Workflow;
  2. Trigger the workflow for approval;
  3. Approver receives the approval card in the Latest Home Page;
  4. Admin goes to the object definition and changes one label or translation for that MDF object;
  5. Approver notice that the label is not updated and if changes the language, the card is not translated accordingly;


The cards are not showing the labels or translations correctly because the translations were configured in the MDF Object Definition after the card was already generated. All the label changes and translations configured after the card is already in the Home Page will not be showing due to an existing limitation in the feature.


Our MDF product team is working to fix this limitation in the product. The target date for delivering this fix is b2305. No workaround is available at this point, the card will only show the correct labels and translations if generated again. 

We will be updating this document if something changes on this subject.
