Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to System admin > USERS > Search for any users
  2. Try to update the “Primary Supervisor” and save the settings.
  3. You will see the updated “Primary Supervisor” will disappear.


This is happening because under search selectors “User” Configurations file criteria.ID.enabled will be set to false, As the Primary supervisor is also a user entity. This is essential to have the user ID criteria viewable in the user records.


Please follow below steps:

  • Navigate to System admin > Configurations > Search selectors
  • Search for criteria.ID.enabled=
  • Set this to true.
