There are some objects (like FieldDefinition or AppTabMember) that when you want to uses SOSL SELECT all data from them, it fails with "a filter on a reified column is required". I have a lot of questions about these objects, especially:

  • Is there a way to extract all the values from these kind of objects?

  • Can a custom object be created with reified columns? (Are those columns declared as external reference IDs or something else?)

  • similar question here. I don't think you can create reified fields in custom objects.

  • I have seen multiple answers like that but none of them answered the 2 questions above: "can you extract all the values?" and "Can you create a custom object that behaves with such reified columns?" Jun 23 at 17:12
