Copying a Field Definition

You can streamline the process of adding fields by copying the definitions of existing fields.

To copy a field definition:

  1. From the Workbench shortcut bar, select Configuration > User Data.

    >The User Data Workbench opens.

  2. Select an existing user data type or create a new user data type.

    The User Data Context window opens to the Fields tab.

  3. Click New.

    The Field: New window opens.

  4. Click Copy From.

    The Field Selection window opens.

  5. Type the required information, and then click List.

    You can query fields using several criteria, including the token name or field prompt. You can also perform more complex queries. For example, you could list all fields that reference a specific validation or all fields that a specific entity uses.

    The Field Selection window refreshes with fields matching the search criteria.

  6. Select a field to copy, and then click Copy.

  7. Make any necessary changes, and then click OK.
