Cant order by custom field in a Queue

Hello, why cant I sort by custom field "CODIGO DE PRODUCTO" in the queues?

The usual problem with this is that the custom field does not have a "searcher" applied to it, so it can't be indexed.

Check Admin -> Issues -> custom fields, find CODIGO DE PRODUCTO on the list and click Edit next to it, you'll be able to see the name, description and searcher for it.  Select a searcher for it and then re-index the projects using it, or run a full re-index

It was already selected... but thanks anyway

Hi NIC, 


thanks for your prompt reply!


I dont know if I am finding the right menu...

I can see this



But when I click Edit, only have these options...



Cant see SEARCHER anywhere... :(

That's the field configuration, not the custom field definition.  You need to go to the list of custom fields, not the field configuration for the project.

Is this the screen?



Yes, that's the searcher.

Hello Nic, I've done this but I cannot find the field I'm looking for. Is it possible that it only shows the custom fields for company-based projects? Otherwise, any ideas about why I can't find this particular field in the config?

You are right, fields in Team-managed projects only exist for their project, and they're not configurable with searchers.
