Watching a hidden field

Administrators may need to watch a hidden field.

  1. Use the dictionary to determine the column name of the field.
  2. Elevate privileges to the security_admin role.
  3. Navigate to System Definition > Scripts Background.
  4. In Run script (JavaScript executed on server), enter the following command:
    gs.getSession ( ). setWatchField ( "hidden_field" ) ;

    Replace hidden_field with the column name of the hidden field.

  5. Navigate to the form containing the missing field.

    The Field Watcher tab output contains information about the hidden field.
