2785693 - Some Fields in Sales Document OWL are not sortable


Some standard fields in the Sales Quote or Opportunity OWL don't have a Sort option like other fields, hence you cannot sort ascending or descending.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales workcenter.
  2. Go to the Opportunities view (for example).
  3. Add the field External Product ID (for example) to the OWL via Adaptation Mode.
  4. Click the field in the column.
  5. The Sort dialog is not available.


The field purposely does not contain the sort dialog. It was modeled this way to avoid dumps in HANA that occur for unlimited data types; this field is one of them. We have added an attribute called No Sort, so that sorting in not allowed.


This is the designed behaviour.
