String
Property Type: string
Strings represent a text value and can be configured with validators to limit input using regular expressions, and to enforce minimum and maximum lengths.‌

Property Options

Name
Type
Default
Description
trim
boolean
false
Trims the input string prior to validation but after writers.
lowercase
boolean
false
Lowercase the input string prior to validation but after writers.
uppercase
boolean
false

localization
document
​Content
String localization options. Note: Although query matching for localized string values is possible, some cases (like $elemMatch) are not supported.
localization.enabled
boolean
false
Enable localization for the string values. Reading and writing to the property occurs on the current locale or the options below. When any string in an object definition is localized, a locales property document appears in the instance. Inside it, each localized string property is represented by an array of documents containing each locale and value that have been written ({locale: 'en_US', value: 'foo'}). Note: Once enabled, localization on a string cannot be disabled.
localization.valid
string[]
[]
Limits writing to a set of locales. Leaving this empty allows all org-level valid locales.
localization.fixed
string
''
Limit the native string property to reading and writing this locale. For reading, the fallback option still applies.
localization.strict
boolean
true
For reading and writing, throw an error if the selected locale is invalid. When false, the fallback option is used to attempt to return a fallback value.
localization.fallback
boolean
true
For reading, fallback to any usable locale value when none exists for the requested locale.
localization.acl
document[]
[]
A set of acl entries to apply to direct reading and writing of the locales-prefixed string property document array.
localization.readAccess
number
4 (read)
The resolved access level required to read the locales-prefixed property document array.
localization.writeAccess
number
6 (update)
The resolved access level required to update the locales-prefixed property document array.
localization.aclOverride
boolean
false
When true, the acl entries that are applied to the locales-prefixed property document array are applied from scratch to the caller, instead of augmenting their current access level.
