HTML field type

The HTML editor provides WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) functionality and HTML source mode editing. Administrators can customize some of the functionality associated with HTML fields.

The HTML editors available depend on your version of the UI.

Knowledge articles, service catalog item descriptions, release documentation, and HTML content blocks are common examples of HTML fields.

While HTML fields can be added to split forms, HTML fields are not intended for this use and can behave unexpectedly due to the limited available width in split pane forms.
