In my Search API view, I'd like an Exposed filter > Entity reference to be a select box, not a text field.
I have a view which I created like:
- Views > Add new view > Show: default node index
So it uses the Search API index as a basis.
In the Search API I have ticked to index
field_entity which is an
Entity reference > Content_type: entity (confusing naming, I know).
I want the user to go to the views page & be able to filter the view results by
field_entity (which is an exposed filter/entity reference).
The issue is the view shows the exposed filter as a text field. I have edited
field_entity & checked the box
Render Views filters as select list - this works fine for a normal view but not for a Search API view.
Can I somehow convert this text field to a select box?
To clarify, I cannot use custom or contributed modules on this project, so it needs to be done without using hooks, or other modules, etc.
