Add or manage Custom Meta Data
In this section you will learn how to add or manage a Custom Meta Data.
Add a new Custom Meta Data field by clicking on the Add Endpoint button.
Click on the 'Add Custom Meta Data' button to open the edit page for Custom Meta Data
A Name is first required to create the new Custom Meta Data field.
Enter a unique name for the Custom Meta Data field
|Name||The user friendly name|
|Description||The user friendly description|
|Web Site||Link to external documentation or system|
Once you have added entries to the Values list there are limitations on changes that can be performed on the
Custom Meta Data field (due to the simple fact that it is being used)
The Data Type determines what type of content you can provide. As many other functions within Nodinite Custom Meta Data fields are plugin based which means that you can further extend and expand Nodinite. The list of available Data Types is expected to grow over time.
Select one of the data type plugins
All content and values comes from the Values list. Before the list can be managed you must first select a Data Type.
|Text Field||Single row text field|
|Text Area||Multi row text field|
|Select||Dropdown combobox with single select items|
|Checkbox||Provides a list of checkboxes|
|Table||Table with user defined columns|
|Attachment||Placeholder for any files|
In order to keep the Repository Model clean and user friendly Custom Meta Data fields can be associated with the context where they are intended to make sense. Nodinite is context aware and will provide this information where it makes the end users more aware and as a result your documentation has more meaning.
