This feature allows a user to specify a field which can be used to categorize the batches that are executed in a batch class. The batch class fields can be used to provide some user specific information. The field can be specified while running batches through Web Scanner and Upload Batch.
The Batch Class field tab is available on the Batch Class Management screen:
User can specify the validation pattern along with the sample value for the defined batch class field. All the batch class fields can be assigned field order number in which they should appear on the UI.
The Batch.xml file of the batch contains information on the batch class fields.
