GER allows users to design an abstract GER data model describing a single business domain. A GER model mapping can be added to this model specifying how the Dynamics 365 for Operation application’s data is used to fill in a model at run-time. A GER format can be designed to generate electronic documents. Such format uses the selected GER model mapping as data source for electronic document’s generation. To prevent user from getting problems at run-time, GER designer throws a validation error at design-time notifying user about the usage in his format model items that have no links to the application data in using GER model mapping. Currently, such validation error is thrown even there is no GER model mapping available at design-time for the selected GER data model.
The changes in the hotfix contain the code modification that modifies the GER format validation logic. With this fix, a validation error is thrown for any format element that bound to a model element having no binding to application data only when the selected GER model mapping is available at design-time for the using GER data model.
