We have found one issue when we add a data source to the field MULTILIST with search it works fine but in case if we add a new language version for that data source then it’s giving only first three records.


Data source values.

1  Argentina – No language version added
2. Armenia -   No language version added
3. Belgium -   No language version added
4. Brazil  -   No language version added
5. DR Congo -  No language version added
6. Ecuador -   No language version added

Without language versions, it’s giving correct data for the selection, below is the screen shot. enter image description here

Issue details-

If we add a new language version for these data source values, As the example below.

1  Argentina –  Added 1 language version
2. Armenia –   Added 1 language version
3. Belgium–    Added 1 language version
4. Brazil –    Added 1 language version
5. DR Congo–   Added 1 language version
6. Ecuador–    Added 1 language version

Below is the reference screenshot where one three records are showing. enter image description here

Note:- We have also tried with Fiddler tools just to track the request and response details, what we have observed here is-

We are getting a response from the backend but somehow it's not showing in the multi-list.

Below is the screenshot from the fiddler response.

I have raised a Sitecore support ticket (Reference number is 493265), then set up a call to describe this scenario in details, they have reviewed this item and identified as an issue and have provided a fix.

After applying this patch, it's working fine.
