What is a User-Defined Field

A User-defined field (UDF) is a custom-created field of an entity class (i.e. object type).

Suppose that you want to store contract expiry dates with applications or suppose you want to create a view on the energy blueprint of a process.

In these cases, you create a user-defined field.

Common User Defined Fields

Below are some examples of user-defined fields:


  • Throughput
  • KPI
  • ...


  • Functionally Fit
  • Technically Fit
  • Containerized


  • SLA
  • Underpinning Contract
  • ...


  • Platform
