Are we supposed to be able to update our Knowledge Base Article Enumeration Strings?

We have several items in our "Knowledge Article Category" Enumeration list. Recently a request came up to change one of the categories - an example is change "Phone" to "Cisco IP Phones". It seems simple enough, I went into the Enumeration list settings and tried to update the display string, but each time I get "Failed to update Enumeration."

Log says:

2017-04-19 11:52:38,045, ERROR [  53]:  Enumeration / Add or Update
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'Enabled', table 'tempdb.dbo.#zSTG_0_Enumeration_________________________________________________________________________________________________0000000494B3'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails.
The statement has been terminated.

It's seeing a null value, but I'm adding one in.

I've tried on both IE11 and FireFox. 

Is this maybe a bug? Or does it not like updating values that are already tied to specific knowledge base articles?

    Hi Amanda,

    You should be able to edit those Knowledge Article Category enumerations exactly as you described. I tried reproducing in my lab environment and wasn't able to (v7.4). What version of the Portal are you running? I recall there were some issues with earlier versions.
