Service Portal - dot-walked fields.

Using the "Show Matching" context menu returns incorrect results when one of the fields in the filter is dot-walked. The API call to "/api/now/sp/getInOutQueryTerm" seems to be the issue here.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an instance with Table inside a Service Portal page with the following information:
    • Table: [sc_req_item]
    • Filter: Request.Requested for is (dynamic) me
    • Widget: Data Table from Instance Definition
  2. Open the page in Service Portal and the list of [sc_req_item] created by the current user will be displayed
  3. Right-click on any record field and select "Show matching"
  4. The widget will not display any record
