When exporting an AFX connector with enabled capabilities and importing to the same system or another system, the capabilities are no longer enabled.

CauseThis occurs if the connector capabilities had no mappings defined when the connector definition was exported.

When using AFX, the capabilities require mappings. The exception to this is when using a provisioning node in a fulfillment workflow. When using a provisioning node, the AFX capabilities need to be enabled but no mappings are required. 

This is a defect reported in ACM-76107 as the import of connectors did not consider this use case. 

ResolutionFixed in 7.1.1, not yet released as of publication date.
WorkaroundWhen enabling AFX capabilities for use with a provisioning node, define 'dummy' mappings for each capability. The mappings will not be used but this will allow the exported connector definition to be imported on another system and maintain the capabilities.
