Field/Attribute is not visible to specify as a Alternate Key


Today we are creating some of the alternate keys in the system for some integrations and observed one of the custom fields which we have created on Contact is not showing up in the Alternate Key list. 

Somehow wondered and checked the field. After checking the field, came to know that Field Security was enabled for it and after disabling it, the field is visible in the fields list of alternate key.

For double checking, added that field to the Alternate Key fields list and tried to enable to Field Security and received the error as below.

Also, it makes sense if we enabled to Field Security not all the users doesn’t have read access and that way we are breaking the thumb rule of the Alternate Keys.

Hope this helps.

Happy CRM’ing
