I am trying to put a filter on a lookup field so that i can only show the records which will full fill the filter criteria. But in during the setiap of filter criteria i am not able to get all the custom fields in filter criteria to add filter logic. I have checked the fls permission as well and its allowed to system admin. Can anyone please suggest me how i can get the fields in filter criteria.

Thanks in Advance

Lookup field filters do not support all field types. Specifically,

Lookup filter criteria can’t reference these types of fields on the source object:

  • Autonumber
  • Encrypted
  • Formula
  • Long text area
  • Multi-select picklist
  • Roll-up summary
  • Text
  • Text area
  • URL

Salesforce recommends the use of validation rules if you have a use case that lookup filters don't support, such as the above, or needing to reference a relationship field from the source object or more than one relationship deep on the target object.
