Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log onto affected system with provided access. 
  2. Go to Manage Data
  3. Select Legal Entity. 
  4. Update name of a record stored under Legal Entity e.g. Company name
  5. Save the changes. 
  6. Go to Manage Permission Groups. 
  7. Search for the role group that has this legal entity associated with them
  8. Notice the legal entity still has the old name prior to making the changes and the newly updated name is not reflected. 


Expected behaviour as the legal entity element is configured to a string element in the data model. 


The element changed under Legal Entity is mapped to a string element in the data model.

This cannot be automatically updated once the changes have been made and it is expected behaviour. 

Note: Always check the data model to see what element it is linked to. If it is a string element it will not be automatically updated by the system after changes have been made.
