MDM validation error during checkin

We have just applied support packs to the following level: SRM-MDM 2.0 SP04 Patch14 and MDM 5.5 SP06 I am testing these in the development environment. I imported records into Data Manager. They are in a checked out mode and am trying to check them in. I have several validations set up. When I validate the record separately against each validation, it passes. When I try to check in, I get the message "One or more records failed a validation." I have cleared all validations and added each one back in separately. I am able to checkin a record until I added this validation: IS_NOT_NULL(Short Description).

We want to make sure the short description field is populated.

This validation currently exists and works in our production environment. I rebuilt it by selecting the function and field from the dropdown lists. Any suggestions/help is appreciated.

    I am not clear with your Problem. Is it like record has Short description maintained and when you are trying to Checkin it is throwing error "Validation failed" because of IS_NOT_NULL(Description)????

    If the above is correct, then check whether short description is maintained for product or not. if this is not maintained then definitely it will throw error.

    • Hi Experts,

      SAP came back with note 1471038.

      For an item we have three languages defined. At this time, we only truly populate English and have the Repository Detail in Console set where the Primary Inheritance for the other two languages is English.

      In the Data Manager Language Detail tab for a record, the English short description shows up in black font, but the Spanish and German short descriptions are green. We determined that this means there really isnu2019t something populated in the field for those languages.

      I had to change my validation expression to IF (LANGUAGE=English [US] IS_NOT_NULL (Short_Description)). And it now works correctly.
