APIv4 explorer, search kit - entity reference fields tricky if you know the id
One of my annoyances with apiv4 explorer is now in search kit too. Quite often I know the id of the contact but not other details - in order to prevent leaking information we only pass around the id. While it makes sense in most use cases to use the entity reference look up that lookup is hard to use if you just know the id as you still need to enter 'something' to make it search.
With search kit this could impact when making the initial search and exposing in the dashlet (I would expect we will be quickly asked for some 'search by id afflets' as well as wanting entity references in other cases. I note the afflet currently renders contact id as an integer field - which is probably better than an entity reference for our current use cases but I think that we will want to be able to have more control (ie choose between an integer or entity reference field). I can see a case for making entity reference field better support entering the contact id - but I think we need to be mindful that when people are working with contact ids they are often doing data-entry type stuff that requires them to be able to enter the id & click go without many extra steps
