How to create extra fields?

Click “Create Extra Field” to create an extra field.

A drop-down menu is displayed with various fields. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory and must be completed.

Fields that must be completed when creating an extra field include:

  • Field name*. Field descriptive name. Displayed in DB Name column in entity’s table. The prefix “Z-“.is automatically added. This enables standard fields to be differentiated and customized and they can also be viewed as displayed on the API.
  • Entity*. Auto-completed field. Entity for which an extra field is being generated and which is visible by the user.
  • Data Type*. Depending on the value selected from the list, a series of fields to complete are displayed.
  • List values. text (opens a drop-down menu requesting character limit), list of values, multiple list of values, integer, decimal, currency, date and time, Boolean and percentage.
  • Default Value. Default values vary according to what has been selected for the “Data Type” fields. If the value is regular (text, number, etc.) the displayed default value should be included. However, if the selected data type is a list or a multiple list of values, one or numerous values can be selected from said lists so that they are displayed by default. Enter the ID value and not the name or description. The ID value must be included by default.
