About List Boxes

List Boxes provide an opportunity to support check tables or drop-down lists for fields within Syniti Migrate.  There is a significant list of defaulted list boxes based upon the system, but users are allowed to add new list boxes based upon needs for Migration fields.

View the following page by navigating to Administer > Advanced > List Boxes from the Syniti Migrate Homepage.

List Boxes: Display

The system defaulted list boxes are fixed.  These system default details may be displayed using the Edit  icon, but the user cannot edit fields within an existing system defaulted list box.  The Add icon displays a Listbox Key if the Listbox is configurable. Therefore, depending upon the configuration for the List Box, Listbox Keys may be editible, deleted, or added.

The image below confirms that since the keys are not configurable, there is no Add icon visible in the Listbox Key panel for this Listbox row.

Listbox Key

Each Listbox contains a list of Key fields.  The system defaulted list boxes also contain lists of Key fields.  Most of the Listbox Key fields are set to Locked - no changes.  However, a small number of these key fields are allowed for changes to mark as Active/Inactive, Edit field values, and even to Delete the Listbox Key value. 

An example is for the Listbox DATASOURCE_ENVIRONMENT.  In this situation, there may be a need to Add new, Edit, or Delete current Instances for a Datasource, and so these Listbox Key fields may be updated as well as displayed.  Each Listbox should be checked to determine if the icons for Edit, Add, and Delete are active and in use.
