In addition to the standard application metadata (such as name, version, and description) that you specify when you add an app to Apperian, you can manage custom metadata that is unique and meaningful to your business. For example, say your organization is a university and you manage multiple apps for students and faculty. You can use custom metadata to store values for School, Major, Year of Study, Campus, and so on.
Add, Edit, and View Custom Metadata
Once the template is saved in Apperian, the custom metadata fields you defined will appear in a "Custom Metadata" section on the Add New Application and Edit Application pages for any application type.

You will also be able to see any custom metadata specified for an app on the app's Details page.
Manage Custom Metadata with API Requests
If you are an Apperian API user, you can send/receive custom metadata with your API requests/responses. Note that you do not need to define a custom metadata template for your organization in order to send custom metadata via the API. The request simply needs to include a custom metadata object in the supported JSON data format.
