Reproducing the Issue

  • Create an association to the MDF object : Job Classification
  • Set condition field as Picklist field -> Save
  • Go to Manage data -> Create or Edit the existing Job Classification
  • Fill in the associated object field values -> Save
  • Result: No data is saved for the associated object


Only primitive and the GO(Generic object) fields are supported in Job Classification currently.
