Consider the following Silverstripe page class

class Page extends SiteTree{

static $has_many = array('OtherDataObjects' => 'DataObjectClass');

public function getSearchContext() {

$fields = new FieldSet(

new TextField('Title', 'Tour'),
new DropdownField('OtherDataObjects', 'Other Data Object', array('data', 'value')

$filters = array(
'Title' => new PartialMatchFilter('Title'),
'OtherDataObjects' => new PartialMatchFilter('OtherDataObjects.Title')
return new SearchContext(

Adding this search form to a front-end form and posting a search form always results in a [User Error] with a SQL error containing something like this at the end.

AND ("DataObjectClass_Live"."DataObjectClass_Live" LIKE 'title') ORDER BY "Sort" LIMIT 25 OFFSET 0 Table 'database DataObjectClass_Live' doesn't exist

I always get this error when search for items based on the has_many or many_many object relations. I get the same error in SIlverstripe versions 2.4.x and the latest 3.0.x versions.

Any help or pointers will be appreciated.
