How to specify a data source by specifying a non-persistent entity in Bootstrap Multi Select widget

I am using Bootstrap Multi Select widget downloaded from marketplace with mendix 9.6.0. How can I specify a data source with this widget by specifying a non-persistent entity?

I don’t think that is allowed. The widget requires the source to be persistable.

Alternatively, you could re-think the design of the application to see how you can store it as persistable and then use it in the widget. But I don’t see any other alternative if you want to use the widget.

Hope this helps!
