Action fields

Each action has its own set of fields. Created fields will be displayed in a bundle setting or used as a response field. Created fields should be placed in request widgets if necessary.

Field creation

Click the “Add field” button and fill in the fields in the pop-up. Fields list at creation:

Field code: internal ID of the field. It can contain only Latin letters and numbers. Not available for editing.

Name in English: field label will be displayed to the user in Albato English interface.

Hint in English: text will be displayed under the required field as a little explanation for Albato English interface.

List: list created in the app is selected and linked to this field.

Type: select the field type.

Editable field: Indicates that the field will appear in the action settings. If there is no check mark, the field does not participate in the settings, but you can save the value of the variable in the Response tab. In other words it is a “response field”.

Required field: Albato cannot save the step setting and start the bundle if this field is empty.

Any created field is available for editing by clicking on pencil icon:

Field types

Each field has its own type, the type affects the field's appearance and value.

String - Row ””

Int – Integer

Decimal - Fractional number

Boolean - The field has a list with the values “Yes” and “No”.

DateTime - Date and time type needs additional format conversion.

Phone - Another internal type indicating a phone number field.

Elements array

All types can have an additional type with + array at the end. This type means that the data must be passed in an array of elements (ed. Array of strings). Thus, if you need to transfer JSON in this form:

{"tags":[ "tag", "tag2", "tag3" ]}

Filling in the field, you can specify several values and separate them with a comma, by creating one field that will be mapped to tags with the StringArray type. Then an array of elements will be formed and transferred in the HTTP request.
