Lists of Values

Lists of values aggregate referenced and enumerated lists of values assigned to entities.

By default, the Deployment list is assigned to data sources, where users can select values from the list to specify whether the deployment is on cloud or on-premise.

You can also add and configure new lists as needed.

On the Global Settings > List of Values tab, you can view and edit existing lists. However, you cannot add new ones as this requires changing the metadata model.
