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.
The following API methods use this data model.
- Retrieve Field Definition
- Update Field Definition
- Delete Field Definition
- Create Field Definitions
- Query Field Definitions
These fields are assigned by the API server and cannot be changed.
The GroupKey uniquely identifies a single Lockstep Platform account. All records for this
