lightning:recordForm is not supporting dependent lookup filter field

Developer Tools

When we are creating a record using lightning:recordForm and the object on which record is being created has any dependent lookup filter field, then the lookup will not work.

Steps to replicate:-
  1. Create a custom object.
  2. Add two fields - Contact and Account.
  3. Add a filter so that the Contact field only shows contacts from the Account Name field selection on the same record.
  4. Now create a lightning component with lightning:recordForm passing the objectApiName as the custom object created in Step 1.
  5. Contact lookup only shows the contact whose account is null, eventhough you select an account in account lookup.

This is a common issue regardless of the lightning component you use to create a new record. This issue can be encountered when you use:-
  • lightning:inputField in lightning:recordEditForm
  • lightning:recordForm
  • force:inputField
  • force:recordData

The only exception where dependent lookup filter field works fine is force:createRecord

Much needed fix.
