Configuring Custom Fields on Web Pages

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

As of Aeon v5.1, custom fields have been added to existing DLL tags and can be displayed on any of the web pages once configured in the Customization Manager's Custom Field Definitions table.

<#PARAM name="[Context].CustomFields.[ShortName]">

<#USER field="CustomFields.[ShortName]">

<#TRANSACTION field="CustomFields.[ShortName]">

<#ACTIVITY field="CustomFields.[ShortName]">

<#DATAROW field="[Context].CustomFields.[ShortName]">

When formatting these tags, "[Context]" should be replaced with the custom field's context type (Transaction, User, or Activity), and "[ShortName]" replaced with the custom field's short name.

Validation will apply to ensure that custom fields with the data type Integer, Date, and DateTime are properly formatted.
If User custom fields are updated, User Change History entries will be added for those fields.

Configuring Display Options

Additional display options are available for custom fields of certain data types:

Data Type Display Options
DateTime "ISO8601" - Format date according to the ISO8601 standard.
Boolean

"YesNo" - The value of the field will display as "Yes" when True and "No" when False

"TrueFalse" - The value of the field will display as "True" when True and "False" when False

These options are set in the tag's "display" attribute. For example:

<#USER field="CustomFields.[ShortName]" display="YesNo">

Adding Custom Fields to Web Forms

After configuration in the Customization Manager, a custom field can be added as an additional input field on any of the relevant web forms. For specific configuration instructions and examples, please see Adding Custom Fields to Web Forms.

OpenURL

Custom fields can be mapped via OpenURL. The AeonFieldName in the OpenURLMapping table should be in the format "Transaction.CustomFields.[ShortName]".
