Connection field creation

This entity is optional. It allows you to create additional fields that will be requested from the user when creating a connection to the application, which in any way are not related to the authorization.

For example, this can be a request from a user of his domain, since the domain will participate in all subsequent requests, including authorization, such a field is stored in a separate place and is available for all application request widgets.

To request such static data as an API key, which is not even updated, use the authorization entity.

To create, click the "Add field" button and fill in the fields in the pop-up window. List of fields on creation:

Field code: internal ID of the field. The field cannot contain only numbers, Cyrillic and spaces, text + numbers are allowed. It is not available for editing.
