Error description

  • Submission of values for a field with a choice list does not
    take into consideration the case of the characters when the
    limit to list requirement is enabled for the choice list.
    
    Ex)
    Field with choice list with limit-to-list value of:
    '1-Critical'
    
    Can submit '1-critical' (lowercase 'c') without failure.
    
    This affects data integrity anticipated by queries and string
    comparison.
    
    Workaround:
    Employ a field or action level validation hook to verify
    acceptable values vs. entered values, or up-case, down-case all
    values to control uniform outcome.
