CustomFieldDefinitionModel

A Custom Field represents metadata added to an object within the Lockstep Platform. Lockstep provides a
core definition for each object. The core definition is intended to represent a level of compatibility
that provides support across most accounting systems and products. When a user or developer requires
information beyond this core definition, you can use Custom Fields to represent this information.

See Extensibility for more information.
