Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to e.g. work center Partners
  • Go to e.g. view Partners
  • Select Advance Search and try to filter for your field of type 'Global Data Type'
  • The field is not available for selection
  • Enter Adaption Mode
  • Try to add the field to the Advanced Search criteria or the List section
  • The 'Global Data Type' field is not available for selection


  • Within release 1911 a 'Global Data Type' field cannot be added to Advance Search or List sections in the overview.
  • Within 2002 release it still won't be possible to add fields of this type to Advance Search, but it shall be possible to add them to Lists.
