Error Message - ACS Publishing a Data Schema with Custom Resources

Hello,

This is my 1st time working in the ACS tool where I need to extend data fields on the recipients data schema.

One of the fields is a Boolean value.

However - when I got to publish the schema I get this error message.

What is this error? Is this just a warning letting me know the value is NULL since I haven't updated the field with actual data? Should I ignore this error and continue to publish?

I can't find any documentation.

Ramon,

So here's what I did to get it to work, I added a '_' in the name (affiliate_flag). Once I did that, the schema published and I was able to run my WF where I'm updating the fields with data from the spreadsheet.

It's so odd, because that field did not exist on the recipients table, but yet I kept getting this error.

Thanks for your help.

hm, the error looks weird.

It wants to add the column even though it already exists.

Are you already having data within this column?

If not, can you try removing it and then re-publishing the schema?

Yes, that works.

Looking st the log, it rather looks like you have the field already but are planning to change the field definition?

As boolean implies NOT NULL, all data needs to contain a value.

If you have integers for now, you could try doing a small uodate workflow setting all existing records without a value to e.g. 0.

Then deployment should work

Ramon,

Here's what I'm trying to accomplish. Add this custom resource to my Profiles table. Set it as the default value.

Then in WF - load some client data from a *csv - and then perform an 'Update Data' where I will set this value to '1' for only the 200 records I will be 'inserting' to my Profiles table.
