Anyone else using User Custom Fields?
I was trying to get them to work in a 3.8.6 instance, but they do not
appear in the User’s CustomFields box.
I took a look at what Admin/Users/Modify.html is doing to display the
fields and noticed that it is trying to list the fields of the
CurrentUser, rather than looping through all fields available for
users. I modified this code as shown below and now I can see the
custom fields, but I’m running into errors when I set them from the
UI. I set one of these fields from the backend and had it populate
the selected item properly, so I know I’m getting close. I just
figured I’d ping to see if anyone else has run into this. I didn’t
see any changes in 3.8.8 relevant to this code.
The error that I’m getting on updates is:
Custom field RT::CustomField=HASH(0x7f0835dfcc88) does not apply to this object
