Introducing 'Structured Data (Json)' Custom Field Type

In the world of metadata management, adaptability and customisation are crucial. At Aristotle Metadata, we recognise the significance of aligning your metadata with your unique requirements. That’s why we’re thrilled to present our newest addition: ‘Structured Data (Json)’ custom fields.

What Are ‘Structured Data (Json)’ Custom Fields?
The Aristotle Metadata Registry empowers site administrators to enrich metadata items with custom fields. Until now, these custom fields supported data types like integers, text, rich text, date, and choice. While these options have been valuable, we’re taking customisation to the next level.
With ‘Structured Data (Json)’ custom fields, the possibilities expand exponentially. This feature allows clients to create their own custom fields using JSON Schema. But what does that mean for you?

This is how the editor layout can appear, with just one JSON code, featuring a wide range of functionality such as adding new entries, editing existing ones, and deleting them.

Once the changes are saved, this is how it looks on the item page.

Why ‘Structured Data (Json) Custom Fields’ Matter

  1. Enhanced Customisation: JSON Schema lets you precisely define acceptable values for your custom field. This level of control ensures your metadata aligns perfectly with your requirements.
  2. User Interface Flexibility: The JSON Schema provides vital information for generating user interfaces. This means you can design the display and edit interfaces exactly as you envision them.
  3. Efficiency & Productivity: Adding multiple custom fields at once using the ‘Structured Data (Json)’ type streamlines your metadata management. Administrators can define these fields by adding JSON code in the JSON Schema, making it a seamless process.
