I've created an external object. Now I want to use it in Lightning App Builder. I dragged a filter list component onto the canvas. Then I was looking for this external object in the "Object" drop down. But I cannot see it there. In fact, I can only see case, contact, group and opportunity. Even other salesforce built-in objects aren't there.

I imported 2 of them from an external data source. My assumption is that regardless whether it's salesforce standard object, custom object or external object, after I created them, it should be transparent to lightning app builder. Maybe there is some place I need to explicitly configure to show this object in lightning app builder?

How can I get them to show up?

  • Do you mean a custom object or external object? – Gaurav Kheterpal Jan 8 '16 at 6:33
  • external object. I imported 2 of them from an external data source. My assumption though is that regardless whether it's salesforce standard object, custom object or external object, after I created them, it should be transparent to lightning app builder. Maybe there is some place I need to explicitly configure to say show this object in lightning app builder? I don't know. – Guang Yang Jan 8 '16 at 16:51

First you have to add your custom object into Tab than you will be able to access it from Filtered List.

You have to add the External Object to 'Tabs' (Setup->Tabs) and it will be visible for you to be added as a Tab in your application.
