Multiple Metadata fields of same type

Oct 16, 2017 at 4:32 AM
I am wanting to store test results and have the conditions for the test stored as metadata. I can't find a way to create a Custom Profile with, say, multiple fields of System.Generic.Integer (or any other Generic data type).

Is this possible?

You would either have to create a custom property with the type of multi-valued integer, or find an existing system defined property with a usable type. There are not in fact many multivalued properties. One that you might make use of is System.Keywords, which takes multiple string values, and so you could store the test conditions as string encoded integers.

Another approach would be to use a string property like System.Comment, and store a more complex structure in it, such as an XML value.

Hope this helps.
