Welcome to the Solution Order Custom Field Extensibility Tutorial, in which you can enhance custom field in new business scenario.

This blog is one of the series:

In this tutorial we use two custom fields on Solution Order header level and item level, because we believe this scenario allow us to provide a guided path through the functionality, you’ll need in most of business scenario. We’re hoping to show the minimum information that will help you get up quickly.

As a result, you will know how to implement extensibility in different aspect of solution order.

    • Enter the field properties for the new custom field.

    Business Content: Service Header.

    Label: <field lable>

    Identifier: change the identifier if system proposed name is not okay.

    Tooltip: <Tooltip>

    Type: <select the appropriate field type>, select “Text” from the dropdown for testing purpose.

  • Click on “Create and Edit” button, you will be navigated to the Details screen.
