User Defined Function: Changing the description does not work

Hi,

in a message mapping I have a user defined function (UDF). Now I want to change the description of the user defined function. Therefore I edit the UDF and enter a new description.

Once I save the message mapping in which the UDF is contained, the changed description will be overwritten by the original one that has been entered when the UDF was created initially.

Changing the <i>label</i> of the UDF works fine but changing the <i>description</i> seems not to be possible...

Has anyone a solution for this?

I have observered this in XI 3.0 and 7.0 with different SP's. Currently I am working with 7.0 SP11.

Thanks and Regards,

Helmut

    I think you need to activate the message mapping after you make the change and then you should be able to see the description.

    Not sure coz I dont remember having tried this though.

    Hi Helmut,

    <i>Changing the label of the UDF works fine but changing the description seems not to be possible...</i>

    If the label is possible then it should work with description also. Sometimes we wont concentrate on small things. Please save ur UDF after u change the description and then save the MM. Then activate it.

    It should work...
