Applies to: SQL Server 2016 DeveloperSQL Server 2016 EnterpriseSQL Server 2016 Enterprise Core


Assume that you have a Master Data Services (MDS) database in Microsoft SQL Server 2016. You log on to the MDS home page through your web browser, and you enable the Create permission on an attribute such as Telephone. When you add a new user who is not a super user, you may find that the attribute is dimmed, and you cannot add data to that attribute.


This problem is fixed in the following updates for SQL Server:

      Cumulative Update 4 for SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 2  

      Cumulative Update 12 for SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 1
