    Title:
    Enable DFF on Distribution Set Line level (setup)
    Summary:
    Enable DFF on Distribution Set Line level (setup)
    Content:

    Hi,

    I've enabled a context segment on the Distribution Set Line level (setup screen). However, on this Line level there is no default 'additional information' or 'context value' dropdown.
    I tried editing the page through customization to enable the field somehow, but it does not seem possible..

    Can anyone give me a detailed navigation of how I enable this DFF on distribution set line level?

    Thanks.

    I checked with development just to be sure but DFFs at the Distribution Set line level is not supported.

      Hi Becky,

      That is very unfortunate. I've just got Oracle to confirm me the same on an SR:

      Bug 27262161 : DFFS FOR DISTRIBUTION LINES ARE NOT APPEARING ON THE USER INTERFACE

      The interesting fact is that there is setup to create all the flexfields or context segments, but then no way to show them in the screen?
      Seems like a feature that is only half built-in. And the enhancement/bug is already running as of 2017...

      (Also the Bug is quite confusing, as the DFF's are for Distribution SET lines)
