Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting >> select any requisition where multi-select fields (mfield) are used for filter fields.
  2. Select multiple values in the picklist associated to that multi-select field.
  3. There is a required column "Primary" where you have to select a primary value out of the multiple values you have selected in step 2.



 Expected behavior by design.


An mfield configuration requires a primary value to be specified. Primary value is used in integrations with other products or systems since most other systems cannot receive multiple values in a single field.

This Primary column cannot be removed from the Multi-select filter fields in a requisition.
