I am trying to create a new Entity and I am getting the following error:

What can be the cause of the error?


On the Department and/or Location objects there is a required attribute with no default value set.


1. Go to Administration > Studio > Objects

2. Search for the Department object and got to the Attributes tab

3. Check for any custom attribute that has been marked as required, but does not have a default value

4. Ensure all custom attributes that are set as required do have a default value set

5. Do the same for the Location object 

6. Once all required attributes have a default value set, you should be able to create a new entity.
