Entity detail members

Members are properties and relations that are part of an entity definition. They can be represented on a page using an entity details component linked to that definition. When you configure a component, the available member groups are determined by the Source setting.

On the Members tab for the component, you can select which of the available members groups you want the page component to display, and then configure those groups and their members to determine what to display and how to display it. For each group, you can also select which members to display to page visitors.

Configure member groups

To configure member groups:

  1. On the Layout tab for the page, click the Entity details component.

  2. On the component details page, on the Members tab, use the Member group selection field to choose how you want to view available member groups while configuring them:

    • Individual member groups - to list all relevant member groups individually.

    • By content group - to list member groups according to which content group they are in. Content groups are defined when creating member groups in the schema and are used to group content fields in an Entity details component.

  3. Turn on the switch next to a group you want to configure.

  4. In the Settings section, define the following options.

Configure visible members

Each member group has a Visible members section that lets you choose which members of the group to display on the page, and configure what each member displays.

To configure visible members:

  1. In the Visible members section, next to a member you want to configure, ensure the switch is turned on.

  2. In the drop-down list, click one of the following options:

    • Editable - users can change the member value.

    • Not editable - users can't change the member value.

    • Set once - users can set the member value once upon creation of an entity. Then, the member becomes uneditable.

  3. Click More options settings icon and configure member-specific options.

  4. Click Save.
