    Defect Status

    Issue VYG-6721 is currently in development.

    Replication Steps

    1. Create a record set of bibs or MFHDS
    2. Create a Data Change rule set with a rule adding a new MARC subfield, adding a text string including "DISCARD" into the new subfield
    3. Run a Preview with this criteria; note the translation of "DISCARD"
    4. Run a data change preview job; examine the results file; note the translation of "DISCARD" as "msgObj.setDiscard();"


    Use a string that avoids using words that can be translated into functions.
