Sage Network API


  Less than to read

A Custom Field represents metadata added to an object within the Sage Network. Sage Network provides a core definition for each object. The core definition is intended to represent a level of compatibility that provides support across most accounting systems and products. When a user or developer requires information beyond this core definition, you can use Custom Fields to represent this information.

See Extensibility for more information.


The following API methods use this data model.
