custom property not displaying at folder creation or Details screen

Hello everyone

I have created a custom boolean property that I need to have displayed both at folder creation and in the Details screen of a folder after it's created. The property is in the default namespace, and is in the Custom group. I have created a properties file for the label and created the necessary meta data extension. The folder validity pattern is " / " and the Resource Type listed is "normalct" so that it's active for folders only.

Then I went to Property Groups and listed my new property in the Group Items field of the Custom group. The Custom group is a part of "all_groups" so that group is displayed both when a new folder is created in KM and when the Details screen of a folder is displayed.

<i>However,</i> my custom property isn't displaying under the Custom tab when I go to create a new KM folder, nor when I view the Details screen of an existing folder. What configuration am I missing? Do I have to develop a custom property renderer for each new property I need to create? I was hoping I could achieve this result with configuration changes only, but I must be missing something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and rewarded. 😊

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Fallon,

    It looks to me like you have only entered a incorrect entry in the "Resource Type" parameter of your new property. You need to enter the Resource Type ID ("") and not the Resource Type name ("normalct").

    Hope this helps,


    PS: Just a small remark: Custom Properties are the ones that can be created "on the fly" by users in the details dialog and are not configured in the KM. New (custom) properties that you configure in KM configuration are usualy called "Predefined Property".

    • Hi Robert,

      And if I want to define a custom property that can reside on folders and documents?

      - is there a resource-type id I have to fill in?

      - should both folder and document validity pattern be "/" ?
