Using the Display Only Field component to display information at runtime

The Display Only Field component is available in the Shared Components section of the View designer, and is visible only if the following bundles are deployed: 

  • Shared Components
  • ITSM Application

The Display Only Field component displays information to the user at runtime and does not store the value in the database. This component is not linked to any container and can be used in View designer as a separate component.

Important

Application business analysts can customize the objects developed in their own applications and that are marked customizable by the administrator, but cannot customize the objects developed in com.bmc.arsys in Best Practice Customization mode. For example, objects in core BMC applications, such as Foundation, Approval, and Assignment cannot be customized in Best Practice Customization mode. For more information, see Customization layer
