Understanding Page and Field Configurator
PeopleSoft Page and Field Configurator feature enables the users to configure certain properties of pages and fields of classic pages based on their business requirements. It allows the users to define multiple configuration for a component based on different user roles or user list. User can define multiple criteria based on the component fields and selectively apply the configuration at run time if the criteria is satisfied based on the run time values.
Using this feature, a user can hide a field/page, change label of a field, add default value to a field, make the field/page read only, or mark the field as mandatory without having to customize delivered application pages. It also permits the user to verify the configuration against the underlying page metadata and flag out if any errors exist.
Note: The configuration can be applied only to a registered component in the system. Secondary pages and other modal pages or components could not be controlled using the configuration.
