Migrate invalid field values

AUTHOR: LeanIX Product Team

You may see a notification to update certain field values of Fact Sheets in your Meta Model Configuration.

LeanIX products are based on GraphQL query technology. Updates to GraphQL have changed naming specifications and made them more restrictive. As a result, some name values in Fact Sheet fields are now invalid.

To keep our products and their APIs up to date and maintain the ability to deliver new features, we need to ensure all existing values in workspaces are compliant with the latest GraphQL specifications (e.g., values are not allowed to contain white space or special characters). Therefore, invalid technical values of single- and multiple-select fields need to be updated.

Admins of all affected workspaces will be notified about invalid values via the Meta Model Configuration page in the admin area. A 'Migration' tab will show a full list of all invalid values and suggests how to fix them (e.g., replacing white spaces or special characters with '_'). Suggestions can be overwritten with individual input adhering to the specification. When all values have been corrected, they can be updated simultaneously ('Update all').

In addition:

  • The required change of values may create the need to update them in systems connected via API integrations.

  • Only the technical values of field names are affected. Therefore, the field value's labels in the user interface won't change.

  • When executing the migration, the workspace will temporarily be in read-only mode leading to error messages when users try to save edits. We recommend performing it outside of office hours.

If the invalid fields aren't updated by July 1, 2023, we will automatically apply the recommended values to the affected workspaces. We are grateful for your support and apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause.
