Custom

The Custom field enables you to add and use your customizable fields in the content type. In order to use this field, you need to add one or more extensions (custom field logic) to your stack.

Additional Resource: To learn what Extensions are and how they work, refer to the Extensions guide.

This field possesses certain properties that you can change any time as per your needs. The properties that can be modified are “Select Extension,” “Display Name,” “Unique ID,” “Instruction Value,” “Help Text,” “Config Parameter,” “Mandatory,” and “Non-localizable.”

After you add or create a custom field extension in your stack, you can use it in content types.

For example, if you select Star Ratings custom field in your content type, you will see it on your entry page as shown below:

Additional Resource: Contentstack enables you to enhance the functionality of a field by setting up Field Visibility Rules to hide/show a field on meeting certain conditions. 

You can check out our Content Modeling guide to learn how you can map your webpage’s layout with your Content Type.

Editing any current field in existing Content Type might result in data loss. To prevent data loss, make sure to check out our Content Type Change Management guide.
