The field custom status (ExternalUserStatusCode) is a field with complex structures.

In this way, you can not use operation "==" into the rule configuration to judge its value.


Please use if () and contains () function to configure the rule.

Example is as following:

IF((CONTAINS("Value", Root. ExternalUserStatusCode)), true, false)


ExternalUserStatusCode, custom status, rule editor, rule , KBA , AP-RC-UIF-FLX , Page Layout & Key User Configuration , AP-RC-UIF , C4C UI Framework , Problem
