  • Metadata Framework (MDF)

Reproducing the Issue

1. Set the MDF effective date type as "Multiple Changes Per Day" type

3. Import a new data for the field "A" with the same effective date

4. The import will failed with an error message "You cannot change the value for Data Subject Field of type User from XXX to YYY for"

Cause

This is because field "A" in this MDF object is set in "Legislatively Sensitive Data Configuration (LSPD)"

Any LSPD data can not be changed once created.

Or if it is nessary to change that field, please
