2666834 - Can the quickcard in a custom MDF Portlet also appear in Job Information?


In a custom MDF Portlet, quickcards appear for Generic Object fields. When you click on the quickcard, the details of the Generic Object will display.


However, for custom fields referencing a Generic Object in the Job Information Portlet, the quickcards do not appear.

Reproducing the Issue

1. Create a custom MDF Portlet with Generic Object Fields.
2. Create a UI to display this Portlet in PP3.
3. If you view this portlet in PP3, the Generic Object Fields have quickcards that displays the Generic Objects' Details when clicked on.
4. Create a custom field in Job Information Portlet in Manage Business Configuration.
5. Click on Details for the custom field and use "Foundation Object" as the Reference Object.
6. Enable permission for the custom field in Manage Permission Roles.
7. In Job Information, the custom field referencing a Generic Object does not have a quickcard to view the details of that Generic Object unlike in the custom MDF Portlet.


This is an expected behavior.


The behavior of fields that are of type Generic Object and MDF Picklist is different on a custom MDF Portlet and an EC Portlet.
The fields within the Job Information Portlet will not display quickcards.
