Web Content structure field reference of single and multiple selection and select from list structures cannot be modified


  • I have an issue with the WC structure field reference. I create a structure with "Single Selection", Multiple Selection, or Select from list fields, and at the selections "Option", I edit the default field reference. I save the structure and create web content from it. Upon checking the source of the content, the field reference displays the default value.

Reproduction Steps:

1. Start DXP 7.4 with Q4.6
2. Go to Content & Data --> Web Content --> Structures and create a structure with a single selection field.
3. While creating the structure check the Option of the selection on the right panel and modify the Field Reference to "test" (it starts with Optionxxxxxx), then save.
4. Go to the web content tab and create web content from the structure.
5. Edit the web content, click on the kebab menu on the upper right, select "View Source", and check the XML.

Expected Result: The new reference field value should appear at the [CDATA[test]]

Actual Result: The reference field is showing the default value: [CDATA[Optionxxxxxxx]]
