Extensible Flexfields in Oracle Fusion

What are the Flexfield s in Oracle Fusion?

A flexfield is a set of placeholder fields associated with business objects and placed on the application pages to contain additional data. You can use flexfield s to modify the business objects and meet enterprise data management requirements without changing the data model or performing any database programming.

Extensible flexfield:

Multiple row contexts which display the context’s segments/attributes in a table can be created in order to have custom lists for the business objects.

Extensible Flexfields (EFFs) are new type of Flexfield s that are similar to Descriptive Flexfields. DFFs have limitations 1. They can appear only on the same page 2. The number fields are limited to the attribute columns provided in the table. With the help of multi-page feature EFF can overcome above limitations.

  • Extensible flexfield helps to store the Multi row information’s in oracle fusion. 
  • Oracle fusion has already given the standard Extensible flexfield for each Important Oracle Fusion activity like (Hiring, Work Structure, Person Management, Suppliers, and Transactions).
