    Maybe add an example of a decimal field.

    Hi Rogier,

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Examples for decimal, number and datetime have now been added.

    Best regards,

    I'm looking for a definition of "editable=false" or "editable=true", but I cannot find it anywhere. Could someone please define it, or point me to a definition? I think editable=false may mean that some processes can edit the field, but not interactive users, but I'd like to be certain and know exactly what the limitations and possibilities are.

    Hello Siebrand,

    The editable=false prevents assigning edit permission on a metadata field to user accounts. On top of that they are explicitly blocked in the UI from being editable.

    However users with ROLE_SUPERUSER assigned (admins) are able to edit these fields through the API.
