Unable to filter by text field

Even though a text field can be set to be Public to Filter, the user will always receive the following error message: Cannot filter by private fields.


  • Visit your account’s Dynamic Storage https://{account};

  • Access the Entidade de dados tab, choose an entity, and set a text field to be public to filter.

When querying for that field through the API you will always receive an error message.


You can set the field to be a Varchar 750. This will allow you to filter normally.
