Comparing Tuple field records between Original and Checkout versions

Hi Experts,

I'm quite new to the MDM Tuple concepts and trying to implement a multi-valued tuple in place of an existing multi-valued Lookup qualified flat field.

We have a validation to compare if the lookup qualified field was modified between the original and the checked out version. The validation goes like this:

IF(IS_NULL([Original].Lookup Qualified Field.[Record]),IS_NULL(Lookup Qualified Field.[Record]),[Original].Lookup Qualified Field.[Record]=[Original].Lookup Qualified Field.[Record])

The above validation works perfectly fine.

Now I have replaced the lookup qualified field with an equivalent tuple field and populated the data from the previous lookup qualified field.

I then tried to implement the above validation on the tuple field as given below:


However this is not working. 😔 The comparison of the TupleField.[Record] is always giving False and the validation fails.

I also tried the below approach, however this also fails always.


Both the validations fail even if the checkout record is untouched and the validation is run immediately after checking out.

Is there a way this validation can be implemented successfully, using the MDM validation expressions?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Best Regards,

    Closing this thread since SAP confirmed that this is a bug and will be fixed.
