Returns the display value for an item in a Schema option list.

For example, assume an option list exists for a custom metadata field named Customer. In the database there is a schema table with the CustomerName and a unique CustomerID. On checkin the CustomerName is visible to the user but the CustomerID is what is stored in the database. The getFieldViewDisplayValue function extracts the human-readable CustomerName based on the CustomerID.

Type and Usage


Takes three parameters:

  • The name of the schema view used for the current field.

  • The value stored in the database for the ID.

  • The column name associated with the view.


Returns the display value.


<$custName = getViewValue("Customer_View", "1234", "CustomerName")$>
<$custRegion = getViewValue("Customer_View", "1234", "CustomerRegion")$>
