Codelist restriction on multivalue list

Hi pros,

Does codelist restriction work with multivalue list?

I have two multivalue lists: listA (values: A1, A2, A3) and listB(values: B1, B2, B3, B4, B5).

And the following correlation between them:

- if A1 is selected in listA then only B1 or B2 is available in listB,

- if A2 is selected in listA then only B1, B3 or B4 is available in listB,

- if A3 is selected in listA then only B5 is available in listB.

I created these multivalue lists and setting codelist restrictions in C4C. But here is the problem:

- If I select 1 value in listA, the codelist restriction is applyed to listB and only eligable values are availabale

- If I select 2 values in listA, no code list restiction is applied to listB and all values are available for selection


- User selects A1 and A2 in listA, all values from B1 to B5 are available in listB

Does that mean that codelist restriction do not work with multivallue lists?


At first we created all lists as dropdown lists, so there was no problem with code list restriction. But the customer insisted on multivalue lists, and now we can't understand how to make codelist restriction work correctly with multivalue selection lists.

Best regards,

Nadezhda Rukavishnikova

    Hello Nadezhda

    As mentioned by Suman, this seems to be a restriction for Multivalue Lists. Since this request regarding a new feature request we recommend that perform one of following steps:

    1- If this is not so urgent, then please post your request in the collaboration forum; there you can request the new features for the new releases of the system

    2- If you need this functionality urgently you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center via e-mail to SAP Service Center:

    Best Regards

    Hi Nadezhda,

    I have tested this behavior.

    Currently for Multivalue lists, CLR only works if you select 1 value in Control Field.

    But if you select more than 1 value in control field then all values appear in the other field.

    So there seems to be some restriction in using CLR for Multivalue Lists.

    I would suggest you to raise this as a new requirement in Ideas forum.

    How were you able to only show selected entries from List B when selecting a specific entry in List A?
