Remarks

The AddedBy attribute can be any string and is optional. It has a maximum length of 32 characters.

Many nodes of the customization file support the AddedBy attribute. This attribute is used when customizations are upgraded. As a best practice, it is recommended that ISVs use this attribute so that their customizations can be identified.

The following are best practices for the use of this attribute:

  • Use this value for all new schema elements.
  • Use a name that can uniquely identify your organization and product.
  • Use a human readable name.
  • Do not use spaces or special characters that would break the XML or require encoding. Restricted characters are:
    \ / : * ? < > | " &
  • Use the exact same string for all elements added by the same product.

Example

The following example shows the use of the AddedBy attribute.
