  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • By default the SWIFT Input message type is used in the message
    editor when applying the SWIFT schema.
    Attempts to change to Output type give a damaged message with
    red crosses and missing Application node.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Apply the MT103 message schema to a text message.
    2. Right-click on Application > Type > Application > MT103
    Output
    
    The Input fields remain and are under a blank Message node with
    red crosses on additional added fields.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    1. Remove the Application node.
    2. Re-add the Output type Application node.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * The SWIFT message type defaults to Input in the message      *
    * editor.  Changing the message type to Output resulted in a   *
    * damaged message.                                             *

Problem conclusion

  • This issue has been fixed, with the following behavior:
    
    *  If the schema for the new type defines a fixed value for a
    field, that fixed value is used
    *  The name of the root node is taken from the new type
    *  The user has the choice to include optional fields for the
    new type
