Unable to search delegated data types with picklist property



Unable to search data table for results using the default search field, when a data type is created with a picklist property to provide drop-down selection in data table.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a data type, with a data model value set to picklist
  2. Add drop-down values for the picklist
  3. Create a couple of records

Root Cause

The picklist property used is of type integer whereas Pega only supports text type picklist properties in the data model.


Perform the following local change:
  1. Delete the text type picklist property used in the data model
  2. Create a separate integer type property
  3. Use the integer type property in the data model
