Before you can use mandatory native or custom fields when activating a cardholder or assigning a credential, you must define those mandatory fields in Config Tool.

Before you begin

Ensure that operators have visibility of the requisite custom fields.

What you should know

  • For this feature to work, the plugin must reside in a partition that is visible to the operator.
  • Any field that is defined as mandatory must have a value, and that value must be different to the default value. This might prevent fields with valid default values from being saved. These fields include:
    • Numeric
    • Decimal
    • Date
    • Date/time
    • Boolean
    • Custom data type
  • If a custom field is defined as mandatory from the Config Tool Custom fields task, it will always be validated, regardless of the plugin configuration.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. In the Plugins task, select Genetec™ Enhanced Cardholder Management from the entity browser, and then click the Mandatory fields tab.
  3. In the Mandatory column, select which fields you want to make mandatory.
