Member details configuration

/WEB-INF/config/template/[project]/member/[details].xml

This file can be used to configure additional fields to members of a group.

Overview

Groups can be configured so that members can have up to 15 custom fields associated with their membership. These fields can be used to store additional, arbitrary information.

Details fields are associated with the group membership, not the user directly. So each group can get its own set of fields.

This file can be configured for who can edit or view the fields.

When editing this configuration file in PageSeeder, pressing ctrl-space displays autocomplete options to make editing easier.

Detail field definition

The following table describes the list of attributes for each detail field. By default, the fields in the details form are 100 characters long.

The details configuration can be shared with other groups with the same owner and the same details name. To enable this feature, set the @shared attribute on the <member-details> element to true.
