The rendering of the list of values for a parameterized lookup is not supported until 15.7. However, in 15.4 and 15.4.1: If the user selects and saves a value from the lookup in Classic, that saved value appears in the column cell for that record in the New User Experience (UX). Additionally, a user can define a parameterized lookup in a studio object and provide an API Alias. Unexpectedly - This will cause the field to appear in any of the New UX grids column panels.

Affected grids:

  • Roadmaps
  • Project Risks, Issues, Changes
  • Project Staff (new in 15.4.1)
  • Tasks grid (new in 15.4.1)

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create an attribute using a parameterized lookup in the following objects and set an API Alias attribute id
    • Roadmap Items sub object
    • Project Team sub object
    • Project Tasks sub object
    • Risks
    • Issues
    • Change Request
  2. Go to the respective grid in the new UX
  3. Expand the column panel
  4. Add the new attribute to the grid layout
  5. Try to select a value from the lookup – no values are displayed because the new UX does not know how to support parameterized lookup


New User Experience (UX)

Clarity 15.4 and 15.4.1


For 15.4 and 15.4.1:

Remove the API Alias from the attribute, then it will not show in the new UX.

In 15.5 - 15.6.1:

The API Attribute ID has been deleted preventing this attribute from showing incorrectly in the New UX

Starting in 15.7:

Parameterized lookups are now supported, so the API Attribute ID is automatically populated for the respective attributes such as Project Category
