I am trying to add an Attribute that has a selector control type to an inventory ID. I set it up as follows:



I then go to the inventory ID class and try to select it but it is not available:



  1. If I change the attribute type to anything other than selector, it becomes available in the Class ID Attribute screen.
  2. I tested the selector by creating a user ID field and adding the selector to a user defined field. It worked as expected.

Is there a restriction or issue with adding a selector type field to to inventory class id?

@michael73 As of now this type of Attribute, control Type = Selector is not supported in Item Class thus, cannot be added to Inventory Item as well.
