Defining System Fields

System fields should not be explicitly defined for a business component. The ROW_ID, UPDATE, UPDATED_BY, CREATED, and CREATED_BY columns are automatically populated during the insert process.

You can refer to a system field on another business component, without the system field being explicitly defined on that business component. The system field becomes an option to choose from in the picklist of fields. They are listed as Id, Updated, Updated By, Created and Created By.
