frappe.exceptions.ValidationError: Search field my_custom_field is not valid


#1

Getting error frappe.exceptions.ValidationError: Search field property_unit is not valid

Can’t figure out how to get to the root cause. Will appreciate for pointers to find out more details on why this error occurs. I checked the custom_field.json (from fixtures directory) but couldn’t find any field there.
