User Data Format

User data fields use the following tokens format:




Represents the name of the entity that has user data. For values, see Table 4-1. Entities.


Represents the type of user data being referenced.


  • UD for user data

  • VUD for visible user data


Represents the name of the token for the specific user data field.

For example, suppose that a field for package user data is generated, and its token is GAP_NUMBER. In the default format, the token would be:


PKG indicates that the package entity is referenced, UD indicates that user data is referenced, and GAP_NUMBER is the token name.

When user data fields are generated, a validation that has both a hidden and visible value can be used. For example, if the validation KNTA - Usernames - All is used, the hidden value is the user ID and the displayed value is the username.

Note: Drop-down lists and auto-completes may have different hidden and displayed values. For all other validations, hidden and displayed values are identical.

If context can be determined, user data tokens are displayed with the system-defined tokens in the Token Builder window.
