Manage Catalog

User Defined Fields

When creating or managing a catalog, admins can create custom user defined fields. These fields allow institutions to customize their user registration beyond the default fields of Full Name and Email.

 

Note: Currently, custom field information can only be retrieved through the Canvas Users API and requests should be used with the parent catalog account.

Custom fields are created in a catalog’s User Defined Fields tab. Custom fields created in the parent catalog act as default fields for the entire account and support text or checkbox entries. Custom fields can be easily edited or deleted.

 

Note: The ability to reorder custom fields will be available in a future release.

In subcatalogs, admins can choose to inherit custom fields from the parent catalog. When the toggle is enabled, fields are shown but not editable. However, admins can choose to disable parent catalog association and create their own custom fields for a specific subcatalog.
