Have You Used ServiceNow Collection Field?


Welcome to the new blog of ServiceNow Spectaculars.

Today we discuss one of the field types in ServiceNow, i.e., the collection field type.

What is a collection type?

  • It is one of the ServiceNow field types available.
  • But you can’t create any custom fields using this type.
  • When anyone creates a new table, the system automatically creates a collection field with no label and no name.
  • As per documentation, any collection field represents a table rather than a field on the table.
  • It means if we make any changes in the attributes, configurations of the field, the changes will be seen on the whole table.
  • It should be noted that for one table, there will be only one collection field.

How do I create a Collection Type Field?

  • It is not allowed to create custom fields of this type.
  • It will be created automatically whenever a table is created
  • Only one field per table is allowed.

Changing Attributes for the Collection Field?

We tried changing the read-only attribute for the corresponding incident collection table field.

And yes, all incident tables are read-only.
