Reproducing the Issue

1.Go to Admin center-> Manage Home page

2. Edit Organizational updates

3. Click on Add Card

4. Enter the General details and Card details (Note: Some additional language translations should be maintained for the card title)

5. Enter Navigation details                    

  • Target -> Popover
  • Template -> Iframe
  • Enter the URL and click on next and save . The error pops up: “Fail to save the custom card, please try again later”


The error is due to the URL / Popover Content not having the same language translations maintained as the Card title.

Example full error which will be shown in network trace-

  • {"error":{"status":"BAD_REQUEST","message":"cardDefinition.popoverContent of locale nl_NL is empty.","details":[{"code":"CARD_VALIDATION_EXCEPTION","message":"cardDefinition.popoverContent of locale nl_NL is empty."}]}}


Note: if you maintain a translation in the Title field, and whichever language translations are maintained for the Title field, the same needs to be maintained for URL/Popover content, then the URL/popover field would also validate for same translation.

Please add the translation in the URL field on the highlighted icon: - Localize third party URL and save the card successfully.

4. Cards have been created successfully Ex: test/ test1.
