Using the Standalone Field component to temporarily store values

The Standalone 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

As a developer or an application business analyst, you can use the Standalone Field component in BMC Helix Innovation Studio  to store or display information specific to a session, such as storing the value of a check box, a decision step, or a watch list. 

Important

Application business analysts can customize the objects that are developed in their own applications and marked customizable by the administrator. However, they cannot customize the objects developed in com.bmc.arsys in the Best Practice Customization mode. For more information, see Customization layer.
