Defining record definitions to store and manage data
A record definition is a collection of the data required for building the application for your business process. A record definition is made up of specific record fields. For example, a task can be stored as a record definition.
Application business analysts can customize the objects developed in their own applications and that are marked customizable by the developers, but cannot customize the objects developed in com.bmc.arsys. in Best Practice Customization mode. For example, objects in core BMC applications like Foundation, Approval, and Assignment cannot be customized in Best Practice Customization mode.
