    Custom URL Attribute EDC 10.4

    Richard Jorgensen Seasoned Veteran

      We need to provide multiple urls with hyperlinks for a table or column. There already is one custom attribute labeled URL, but we are unable to change the name to make it more descriptive and we are unable to create additional custom attributes with a url designation. Is there a way to create additional custom attributes that has a clickable hyperlink value?

       

      Listed below is the custom attribute with Data Type URL.  This is part of the system custom attributes and we are unable to change the Name to be more descriptive.

      Tried creating a new custom URL attribute, but no Data Type of URL is available.

          Hi Richard,

           

          Please note that EDC does not have a custom attribute of type URL. Instead String attribute should be used and values that are URLs will be automatically shown as links in the UI.

          EDC has exposed the URL datatype. There is a packaged custom attribute called URL that uses this datatype and where URLs can be provided.

           

          Hence in this case, create a custom attribute and provide datatype as string. When users add a hyperlink value in an attribute of type string then the application automatically shows that as a link.
