When system doesn't have a field for necessary data

A custom field is a system feature you can use to add your own fields to system objects.

You need to differentiate Custom fields in the system modules and iblock properties.

Custom fields are:

  • more universal in contrast to iblock properties, because they can be specified for various system objects
  • limited in features, because they have a small number of object types and data.

Custom fields can be created in an unlimited number for each object. When selecting a specific custom fields, additional settings become available for corresponding type.

When creating a custom field, you must indicate module-specific objects in the system:

Not all modules offer default objects for custom fields. Developer can create their own objects as required.

Note: All modules that utilize information blocks can access custom field objects of the Information blocks module.
