Get Field Information- Get Fields for an Object

Get Field Information is a simple action that takes the name of an object (e.g. ‘Contact’) and returns information about all of its fields in a collection, including name, label, type, required. The data is returned in a collection of a custom datatype called a FieldDescriptor that can be manipulated declaratively in Flow. That means that you can use the Loop element to loop through the FieldDescriptors and get their information or filter them.

It also means that you can pass the entire collection of FieldDescriptors to a component that expects it, such as the Dual List Box component, which has the ability to take as an input datasource the FieldDescriptor. Here’s how that gets configured:


This component is part of the Flow Base Packs package libraries.
