External Lookup field is shown as ID instead of the name
Last updated 2020-06-24 ·Reference W-4338121 ·Reported By 16 users
When performing an External look up on editing the record , the field displays an ID (aXXXXXXXXX) rather than the name of the record.
1. Create an external object A backed by cross org connector.
2. Create a custom object B
3. Create an external lookup by creating a custom field for the custom object A (custom object A as the child and external object B as the parent)
4. Go to a detail page of A, click edit,
Lookup field shows name
Lookup field shows Id
Deleting the Id and search with the record name which you are looking for .
This functionality still works without any issues.
