To edit an instance once it has been created, enter the desired information in each entry field. The entry method and type of information will depend on the field type. See the Standard fields for more information.

Invalid Entries

If the type of information you enter is invalid (ie, not appropriate for the slot), the entry will be shown in red. For example, entering words in an Integer slot is not allowed:

text field with invalid entry

Values that violate other slot conditions, such as values less than the minimum or greater than the maximum, will also be shown in red.

Required Values

If a value is required for the slot (cardinality at least 1) and there is currently no value, the field is outlined in red.

required text field

Default Values

If a slot specifies a default value, that value will automatically be entered in the corresponding field when an instance is created. The default value can be edited.

Template Values

If a slot specifies a template value, that value will automatically be entered in the corresponding field when an instance is created. The template value cannot be edited.
