Custom fields

Custom fields are used for information or data that needs to be managed, but does not have a pre-defined entry in Snow License Manager. An unlimited number of custom fields can be created for the agreement, application, computer/mobile device, license, and user categories.

A custom field can be Mandatory, and must in that case have a defined Default value. The default value will automatically be added to new items within the category, as well as existing items without a value in the custom field. Information in a custom field of an existing item will not be overwritten. New items cannot be saved unless there is a value in all mandatory custom fields.

A list of all created custom fields is displayed in the Custom fields view.
