When selecting a picklist value from a portlet or in manage data you see the picklist values but under the values you see a line "Parent Picklist Value.Label"


You have configured the object "PickListValue" searchable field to display 'parentPickListValue.label'


  • Go to 'Configure Object Definitions'
  • Select the "Object Definition" from the first drop down list
  • from the 2nd drop down list select the object 'PickListValue'
  • Take action > Make Correction >   scroll down to the bottom until you see the searchable fields section > you have the searchable field added 'parentPickListValue.label'

If you do not want this extra line,  remove this line.
