Nulls converted to Empty space on deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've tried searching the forums but can't find anything to match our issue... which surely others much have encountered so do hope a solution lies out there somewhere.

    In one environment, when we add new rows to an entity, some of our columns don't need a value and they are inserted as null, which is all fine, we can live with it. However, when extracting and re-deploying this model to a new MDS environment, these nulls are being converted to blanks, any clue how to prevent this and have nulls inserted? At the moment we're having to load up Excel, enter the column and return, when this is published they values are back to NULL but that is a long workaround.

    Any help appreciated!

    Thanks

  • I can repro the issue for free-form attributes with type Text. For the other types of attributes it works fine and remains as Null. We've created a work item for this bug and will fix it for next release.

    Thanks
