Reproducing the Issue

  1. For this example, navigate to People > Users and select the Add/Remove Criteria >
  2. Note the number of custom column values which are available:

2701440 - Controlling values that are available to select within AddRemove Criteria


While it is possible to update custom columns within Add/Remove Criteria, this field is restricted to displaying either all of the custom columns or none. It's not possible to pick and choose which custom column values to display.

For example to disable/enable these custom values for User:

  1. Navigate to System Administration > Configuration > Search Selectors > search for User > search for criteria.CustomColumn.enabled=true >
  2. Update this value to false and Save. Note that now that all custom column values have been removed from the Add/Remove Criteria and you are left with the standard values:

For any Add/Remove Criteria values, you will need to identify the search selector to update and then search for the criteria.CustomColumn.enabled configuration setting.

The Item search selector is Component.

Note: Any updates which are to be made to Search Selectors must be done by a qualified Learning Administrator. We recommend that you always perform a backup copy of these settings before editing. To do it, simple copy all the text and paste on a text editor.
