Duplicate translations in reference data


When administrators are managing reference codes in their instance, Network checks for duplicate values and translations (the same text in the same language for the same code in the same list). Network prevents customer-owned codes from having duplicate translations, but now permits duplicates between customer codes and Veeva OpenData codes.

Permitting duplicate translations between customer-owned codes and Veeva OpenData codes gives administrators more flexibility to manage their reference codes. Customers might have existing translations that duplicate Veeva OpenData's translations, but the duplicates are only being discovered with the recent duplicate checks. Also, customer-owned translations might duplicate translations that Veeva OpenData provides in the future.

The following behavior occurs when duplicate translations are discovered in customer instances:

  • Network prevents customer-owned codes from having duplicate translations for the same language. An error occurs to prevent the duplication so that duplicates do not display to users in the user interface.
  • Network permits duplicate translations between customer-owned codes and Veeva OpenData codes. Network does a translation check, but if duplicate translations are found, a warning occurs and the duplicate translation is permitted. Only one warning displays if there are multiple duplicate translations for a single reference code.

If there is both an error and a warning for a single reference code, the error always displays first so you will know which issue is blocking you from adding the reference code.
