Cannot link a DE that is already linked after changing field name

Marketing Cloud Audience/Contacts

Last updated 2019-10-31 ·Reference W-6309977 ·Reported By 0 users

Fixed in version Marketing Cloud October 2019 Release

Summary
If you change a field name on a data extension that is used in a link between attribute sets in Data Designer, you can no longer link on that data extension using that same field.

Repro
1.) Create a data extension named 'AFieldNameChange'

2.) Create 2 fields 

-Subscriberkey > PK > Text

-EmailAddress2 > not a PK > EmailAddress 

3.) Go to Data Designer and find an existing Attribute Group > Link to another data extension on emailaddress:emailaddress2

4.) Note this works

5.) Go to Data Extensions in Contact Builder > Find your data extension > Edit the EmailAddress2 field to be 'EmailAddress' > save

6.) Go to an existing or create a new AG > Link this DE directly to contactkey on EmailAddress > Note it fails 

Workaround
Rename the field back to the original name
