Reference Qualifier's filter conditions can be ignored in non-English languages. The translations ignore the reference qualifiers, so references are wrongly linked when there are records with the same display values, which are then treated by the interface like duplicates.

Steps to Reproduce

    1. Log in as administrator
    2. Install any language plugin, for example, I18N: French - Canada Translations
    3. Modify the new_call.request_item Reference Qual condition with the following conditions:
      • Active is True
      • Class is Catalog Item
    4. Open a new_call Record
    5. Change the Call type to Request
    6. In the Request Item field, type *a
      Note that the first available item is Active Clones, which matches the criteria as it is a Catalog Item class
    7. Switch the language to French-Canadian
    8. Open a new_call Record
    9. Change the Call type Type d'appel to Request Demande
    10. In the Request Item field, type *a

Note that the first available item is Absence autorisée, Leave of absence, which should not appear because its class is Record Producer.



Switch the instance to the English language.
