GUIDs on Custom Field Options (ParameterOptions)

Avatar

Level 4

18-01-2023

Description - Add a GUID or ID for custom field values

Why is this feature important to you - When you change a name because of say a typing error and Logic was based on the name

How would you like the feature to work - Update to the system to link custom field values based on the ID rather than the name

Current Behaviour - All relationships to a custom field  or custom field values use the Name

Good news, bad news.

 

The good news is, they already have ID's assigned to them.

 

The bad news is, nothing that is built from the Workfront front-end uses those. I do agree that it seems like there should be a way to update a field value without breaking the logic. I had a similar situation come up, and the best way I figured to do it was by building some custom code which told me everywhere that the value I wanted to change was used so I at least had a list of everywhere I needed to go in and fix manually.
