Can I edit custom field definitions?

After creating a custom field definition, you can edit some data elements on the definition through the Configuration > Custom Fields menu:

  • Admin Console Access: this option will govern how the field appears in the Recurly UI. Choosing to hide the field from the Admin Console will make the field only editable or viewable in the API. Choosing "Read-only in the Admin Console" will make the field viewable in the UI, but only editable in the API. Selecting "Editable in the Admin Console" will allow the field to be viewed and edited in both the UI and API.
  • Admin Console Field Name: if you select to allow the field to be edited or viewed in the Admin Console, it is required to pass a name for the field in the Admin Console.
  • Tooltip Description: this field will be shown in the Admin Console to add context to the field for users to understand the purpose of the field.

You cannot edit the API Field Name or the Recurly object on which the custom field resides.
