I am using lightning:recordEditForm to display form for User object, below is my code. OOTO_Delegate__c is a self lookup field. Upon printing error in console I see

'{"message":"Cannot read property 'value' of undefined","detail":"","output":{},"error":{}}'

The field is also present on layout.

        <lightning:messages />

        <lightning:inputField fieldName="Currently_OOTO__c" aura:id="currentooo"/>

        <lightning:inputField fieldName="OOTO_Delegate__c" />

        <div class="slds-m-top_medium">
            <lightning:button disabled="{!v.disabled}" variant="brand" type="submit" name="save" label="Save" />

enter image description here

It is only happening with User object and custom Hierarichal relationship field. I tried with ManagerId and it was working fine but when I create another custom field and use that, same error appears. another thing to note is, error only appears if LC is opened in Utility bar

It was resolved by adding self lookup field to User Profile Layout

  • I am having the same issue with the lightning:recordEditForm on the Order object. I have added all the fields to the page layout, but I am still getting the error every few tries. The error message is the same as the one you posted.
