Newly added SharePoint properties are not showing up in Context Browser

This article was created in response to a support issue logged with K2. The content may include typographical errors and may be revised at any time without notice. This article is not considered official documentation for K2 software and is provided "as is" with no warranties.


After regenerating a SharePoint SmartObject to pull in the latest added properties, you are unable to see these properties in the SmartForms Context Browser. They show up correctly on some Forms and on the Views, but for this one form the new properties do not show up.


Even if you create new rules or any controls we still do not see them show up in the Context Browser.


To resolve this, please do the following: 

1. Edit the view. Make sure you can see the new values.
2. FINISH the view. (Next, next, finish.) This updates the views definition and references.
3. Test the Form, and the new values should appear in the forms context browser now, since this is pulled from the views definition (even if using form controls, or form rules etc. This still pulls from the view where the SMO is used).
