3463921 - Mandatory/Required Fields not specified on the Pop up Alert Message for Other Languages when Saving a Data for an Object


  • When saving a data for an object (either in Manage Data or People Profile), the missing "Required Field" is not appearing when set on another language. Only "is required" in translated language (ex. "champ obligatoire" when language is French) appears and excludes the name of the missing field. 
  • Scenario example: In English language, externalCode is set as a required field. When saving the object without an externalCode, the popup message: "externalCode is required" message appears. However, on another language, French as an example; when saving the object with missing required fields, only "champ obligatoire" or "est obligatoire" message appears (this is only an example scenario of what could have appeared).

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Settings and switch to another language (ex. French).
  2. Go to Manage Data / People Profile to add a data to the object you want. 
  3. Save the data without inputting any values to the required field. 
  4. "champ obligatoire" appears instead. 


The custom translation for COMMON_ERR_DATA_REQUIRED is set without the \{0\} variable. Example below: 

"COMMON_ERR_DATA_REQUIRED","champ obligatoire"


On Manage Language, modify the custom translation for the key: COMMON_ERR_DATA_REQUIRED. Ensure that the translation have the \{0\} variable. Example below: 

"COMMON_ERR_DATA_REQUIRED","\{0\} est obligatoire"
