Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

User can not configure Gx protocol profile message from GUI with empty Subscriber Attribute.

Impact

User can not configure Gx protocol profile message from GUI with empty Subscriber Attribute. The subscriber attribute is always set to one of the attributes in the dropdown list.

Conditions

When trying to create Subscription-Id-Type and specifying default value, there is no way in the GUI to keep Subscriber Attribute field empty when creating a new Gx Message. The field is always pre-filled with first subscriber attribute from the list - while there should be option of empty value. The help of default value says - The subscriber attribute has precedence over the default value. And indeed, the value of this attribute is influenced by the Subscriber Attribute chosen and default value is not used.

Workaround

User can configure Gx protocol profile message with empty Subscriber Attribute from CLI.

Fix Information

'None' option is added in the Subscriber Attribute dropdown which sets its value as empty.
