Web console: Field that allows user to select one or more values from fixed list

The DRA 9.2 web console has the "Multi Valued Text" field type, but 1) It forces the user to type in a value and 2) there's not a native way to restrict the entered values to a specified list of possible values (this requires clumsy custom JavaScript). We need a field type that lets the user select one or more values from a fixed list of values.

Bill,

Are you looking for a way to customize a filter, which will narrow down the results within the returned values?

Hi Jeff: The "Multi Value Text" field type allows free-text entry, and does not restrict the values that can be entered. What I am asking for is a field type that is a selection list that allows the user to select from only a fixed set of possible values. Another way to say this is that the DRA REST console customization lacks the HTML <select> control (see https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_select.asp) with the "multiple=multiple" attribute.
