We have a lookup field to a custom entity on our Work Order form. Since upgrading to the Unified Interface, this field appears locked. You cannot click into the field to enter data. The only way to enter data into the field is via advanced find > bulk edit.
Field Security is disabled on the field.
The field is not locked on the form.
There are several ways to lock a field, so we need to check them one by one.
1. Go to the form editor of the Work Order form, open the Field Properties for this lookup Field, and check that Field is read-only is checked. If so, deselect it.
2. Check if the Work Order form is set with the business rules of Lock.
4. Check if your security role has Append’ and ‘Append To’ permissions of certain entities.

Hi Lu - thanks for this info - I have checked all your suggestions and issue not resolved.
Sorry a keep point I should have included in my original post - the field is accessible using the web client, it is only 'locked' when using the Unified Interface.
Can you share a screenshot please.
Not sure how useful this is. As you can see, in the Unified Interface, when you hover over the field, it is greyed out and you cannot click into it:
Whereas when viewing in the web client, the look up is available:
The field in question is 'Location'
Based on the screenshot, it doesn't look like a locked field as locked field displays the lock on the field (just like opportunity field right on top of location). As of now I don't know what/why but will see if I can figure out something.
Could you provide a screenshot of the properties of the custom entity for this lookup field? Like this:
It is currently known that there are certain entities that do not support UCI lookup fields.
Please refer to this post:
Hi Lu, the field provided is a look up to the 'site' entity, which as mentioned in the post you shared, is one of the none supported UCI lookup fields. We will look to replace our sites with organisational units to resolve this issue.
