Dictionary overrides

Dictionary overrides provide the ability to define a field on an extended table differently from the field on the parent table.

For example, for a field on the Task [task] table, a dictionary override can change the default value on the Incident [incident] table without affecting the default value on Task [task] or on Change [change].

Administrators can override these aspects of a field:

  • Reference qualifiers
  • Dictionary attributes
  • Default values
  • Calculations
  • Field dependencies
  • Default column display values
  • Mandatory and read-only status
