Filtering the Enumerations page

By default, the Enumerations list displays all available enumerations. However, you can filter the list to narrow the results and exclude items that are not of interest.

You can filter the Enumerations list by classification or description.

To clear the filters and view all enumerations, click the Clear Filter button  to the right of the filter fields.

Filtering by classification

You can search enumerations by classification type, which indicate whether the enumeration is a system enumeration or a custom enumeration created by a user.

An enumeration belongs to one of four different classifications, which cannot be changed:

System Only

This type of enumeration is used to run the program, but does not appear anywhere for the user to access. This type of enumeration can never be changed.

System, Run Time Display

This type of enumeration is used to run the program and also appears in the user interface. You cannot add or delete values, but you can change the captions of the values of this enumeration. The caption is what actually appears in the list when you access it in NexJ CRM, NexJ Admin Console, or NexJ System Admin Console.

System, Run Time Editable

This type of enumeration is more flexible; several aspects are editable, and new values can be added as well. However, values cannot be deleted from these enumerations.

Custom Field Picklists

This type of enumeration is only for those enumerations created by a user in NexJ Admin Console. Its properties are editable, and you can add and delete its values.

To filter enumerations by classification:

  1. Navigate to the Enumerations page.
  2. In the Enumerations list, in the Classification field, select the desired classification, and click the Set Filter button .

All enumerations with the selected classification appear in the Enumerations list.

Filtering by description

Each enumeration has a Description field that contains a plain text explanation of what that enumeration represents.

You can search through these descriptions to find an enumeration related to a certain topic.

To filter enumerations by description:

  1. Navigate to the Enumerations page.
  2. In the Enumerations list, in the Description field, enter the desired text, and click the Set Filter button .

Any matching enumerations are displayed in the Enumerations list.
