Add default value to field

Hi guys,

How to add a default value to a new field in any Page?

Dear Susanna, 

You can go to System designer -> Advanced settings -> Configuration -> open the object, choose a field and set a default value there (

Best regards,


Is there a way to do this in the edit page code? Say for example I wanted a field to be defaulted to some value based on some ESQ which runs when the page is opened? This gives more flexibility than using the Object's default values.

Edit: using this.set("UsrFieldName", value) is the answer.

You can in the business process and wrap conditions to determine the values. If these are validated values/list, you should create a lookup that you can manage outside of the BP if applicable.

Hello Harvey, 

The answer you have specified is correct to reach the described functionality. 

Kind regards,

Roman Brown
