"Load Demo Data" with the activation of Orchestration - Client Software Distribution plugin causes Service Creator to show incomplete page

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Navigate to Service Creator > Category Request and click the New button.

  2. Observe that the page shows five variables:

    • Is this service category for a Department or a group?
    • Department
    • Category name (for example, HR Benefits)
    • Category manager (designates service editors and fulfillers, publishes services when ready)
    • Comments
  3. Activate the Orchestration - Client Software Distribution plugin (with Load Demo Data).

    Note: The issue is with the Load Demo Data instruction.

    For more information, see the documentation topic Activate a plugin.

  4. After the plugin has activated, check the Service Creator again.

    Note that the five variables do not display.
