2785693 - Some Fields in Sales Document OWL are not sortable

Symptom

Some standard fields in the Sales Quote or Opportunity OWL don't have a Sort option like other fields, hence you cannot sort ascending or descending.

Environment

SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales workcenter.
  2. Go to the Opportunities view (for example).
  3. Add the field External Product ID (for example) to the OWL via Adaptation Mode.
  4. Click on the field in the column and note that the Sort dialog is not available.

Cause

This is a limitation that was implemented to avoid a dump in HANA that occurs for the unlimited data types; this field is one of them. We have added an attribute called No Sort, so that sorting in not allowed.

Resolution

This is the designed behaviour.
