I created a new Object and new fields. I am building a Screen flow. I am trying to create a Picklist Choice Set type resource. https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=sf.flow_ref_resources_picklistchoice.htm&type=5

enter image description here

I am unable to see the fields under the selected object. I tried adding the API name manually but it gave an error. I checked whether I can select a field from a diff object and it appeared.

Any idea if this only happens to a new Object? Do I need to enable anything for the new object fields to be accessible from FLOW?

    Definitely check that the object/field were given visibility to profiles as they're all disabled by default on new object creation. Otherwise, a refresh of the page might do the trick if you just literally created it. Not to mention making sure you're actually looking for a picklist (and not a multi-picklist field).

  • That's right! Missing profile permissions. If you put it as an answer I will accept iit.

If it's not showing up after creation, the likely scenario is you just need to refresh the Flow Builder page if you had it opened before you created the object/field.

If that doesn't solve the issue, you could double check the object/field is visible to a profile.

  1. Give permission to profile for the new object

    On "New Custom Object" page, there's the following note in yellow

Permissions for this object are disabled for all profiles by default.

  1. Check that the picklist field is visible/accessible to profiles.
  2. Make sure you select the appropriate data type (picklist vs. multi-picklist)
