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:

Process
