We have an external list surfacing data from a homegrown data source and I need to modify some of the values using JSLink (formatting dates, color-coding based on values, etc.) I have a web part displaying the desired columns. However, when I add set the JSLink path in the web part, it does not even load the script, much less transform the cell contents. I've tested the same script on an ootb document library web part and it seems to work fine.
Can this even be done for an external list? If so, where might I have gone wrong?
I've been tinkering in SP2013 but this really needs to work in SharePoint Online.
