2682184 - Unable to Type Description for List Field in Fiori (RUI)


In Fiori, when you are entering description / name within list field, data is not fetched.

Reproducing the Issue

In Fiori,

  1. Go to the Customer Work center.
  2. Click on Accounts view.
  3. Then click on +
  4. For country field, search with name Australia (as an example).
  5. Data is not searched.
  6. Instead if you search with AU (code), this works.

But this works in HTML5 client.


This is expected behaviour. In RUI, due to some restricition with UI5 library, searching field by its description is not working.

PS: We have this requirement posted in below influence link.
