Reproducing the Issue

- Go to "Manage Role-Based Permission Access"
- Select "Add Users"
- Type in Last name and first name of user > Application error shows up
A field (standard element) in the data model is set up as picklist but is using string values.
To solve this, you will need to cancel/delete the picklist ID for the field (standard element). Note: The search fields (like Location, first name, last name, etc.) should not have a picklist value if they are set with string values.
For example, the standard element field "Location" has a picklist ID configuration of "Country", as seen in the example below:
<standard-element matrix-filter="true" required="true" max-length="128" id="location">
Delete the Picklist ID for the said standard element in order to search for users with first and last name only.
