Symptoms

P6 Web Project Filter for Project ID does not allow "Starts With" function. When filtering on Project ID using the "Starts With" option, the field chooser box is displaying a list of project names instead of project IDs. It will not allow a custom typed value and will not allow one to create a filter such as Project ID starts with "ABC"


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log into P6 Web
  2. Click on the Projects tab
  3. In the Standard View, click "Filters" > "Manage Filters"
  4. Create or modify a filter
  5. Add a filter condition (Project ID + Starts With+)
  6. Notice the word "Search" and the ellipses indicating a list to choose from.
  7. Users are forced to pick from a list of project names instead of entering custom characters
