MCWS Library/Fields
« on: January 20, 2024, 06:38:28 pm »

Would you consider adding a new field to the output of MCWS' Library/Fields endpoint, that indicates if a field is a User's field?

I just wrote a tool that surveys the usage count of all of the fields in MC, and would like to be able to detect which fields properly belong to MC vs. which are User fields.  Many MC fields are identifiable via their EditType being 'Not editable'.   But many others are not.

Thanks for considering.

This would be great for cleaning up obsolete fields from the library

Do you want an input parameter like "All", "User", etc. and only return the specified fields.

Or do you want the fields to simply have an attribute?

Thanks.

Having the attribute would be better.  I can make one call, and filter for the occasion.

Thank you.

I'll make a "Type" attribute.  It has User, SavedInTag, and DefaultSearchField now.  We can add more if you want.  Thanks again.

I have 161 of 485 fields with no value.

It appears that Type is not set if the field is not User, SavedInTag, or DefaultSearchField.  Am I interpretting this correctly?
