Bug Report

If collection config have fields with type:

  • array
  • row
  • group
  • collapsible

And they have a name, flattenFields will skip sub-fields

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a colection config with array or group field
  2. Add name to the field
  3. Check the result of flattenFields

Other Details

Caused by this check, it'd be better to first check if field have a sub-fields despite having a name, then if it doesn't check for a name and return new array

    Hey @HoneySpace — this is actually working as intended, although the function could be misleading. It does not flatten ALL fields, it only flattens the fields that exist within a non-named field.

    What are you looking to do? Can I help? Gonna convert this to a discussion to keep it going.

    Well, I was actualy trying to extend search cappabilities, since Payload API supporst search in nested fields, all I needed was to change how fields get seleceted for building query

    I changed flatten fucntion so it flatten all fields and added extra function to crawl through first-level fields to add collection fields to relationship fields
    Now I have very flexable search controled just by listSearchableFields
