Identifier Property Type

The identifier property data type is used to store a non-negative integer value that is a unique identifier for an object. The intent of this data type is to be used as a key property for an object. This is not a requirement and a property of a different data type may be used as an object key property.

Identifier Property Attributes

  • Name: This is the unique identifier for the property definition. This value must be unique among all properties within the same parent definition.
  • Display Name: This attribute sets the default display name to label or otherwise identify the property value on the Client. This will also be the default label for any screen control that displays this property.
  • Blank: This attribute specifies whether to display a blank value or 0 when the identifier property has not been set.
