2325335 - Description of the Custom Field is not Showing in the Quick Create of a Standard Screen


The description of the extension field that you have created via PDI in the quick create of a standard delivered screen is not appearing.

You may notice the below mentioned behaviors when you click on the drop down of the field:-

  1. No records found message.
  2. Only ID of the value appears.
  3. Junk values appears.
  4. Error appears: Outport of the OVS component is not configured correctly; OVS suggest will not work.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the application screen where the custom field has been added.
  2. Click on New button.
  3. Quick Create screen opens.
  4. Enter a valid value or click on the value help/ drop down.
  5. You can observe the above mentioned behaviors.



You have declared the presentation mode for the extension field as ID&Description, and enabling ID&Description in SAP delivered screen is restricted.

Reasons for the restriction:

  • If you configure it with ID&Description, you should have to create two field which represent the ID & Description , and need to bind description of data filed in data model, but for extension field case , it couldn't be enabled for such settings.
  • Need to enable external Roundtrip to convert Description to ID. but currenlty it is not supported to create any roundstrip on extended screen.




As ID&Desription on SAP delivered screen cannot be enabled you can use Business Configuration Sets in the PDI solution to acheive this.
