Custom field is not applicable for the current project

Hello,

I am having the issue that when I am trying to search for tickets with specific content in custom fields I can not even select them in the basic search. The error message says "<customField> is not applicable for the current project".image.png

What I have tried so far:

- changed the context of the custom field to match the project/issue type

- set the context of the custom field to be global

- check that a search template is set

- completed reindexing

- deleted the custom field and created a new one

 

It works fine for some of the (already existing) custom fields of this specific project, but not for others, but I have no idea why.

Does anybody know what the cause for this might be?

 

Thanks a lot!
Johannes

Hello there,

Just had the same issue, so here's the solution in case anyone else wanders to here.

RESOLUTION

  • Use advanced filter instead of basic

 

Very annoying, but at least it has a trivial solution :D

Maybe some fields are hidden through the project's field configuration?

Hi Walter,

thanks for your response.

No, the field is also added to the field configuration and not hidden.

The strange thing is that I can add this field as a column to the project's queues but I can not filter for it in this queue.
