Dependent lookup field does not work on search filters

Knowledge Article Number 000181876
  • Dependent lookup field does not work on search filters 
  • If you have added a dependent lookup field to a search filter, when you perform a global search and expand "Show Filters" on results. 
  • Clicking on the dependent lookup field icon will not bring up any search popup window 
  • If you go and edit the dependent lookup field, deactivate the filtered component the same lookup on search filter will work perfectly ok.
Resolution  This is working as designed as in our current release, Salesforce does not allow the filtering on dependent lookup.
