To change the name of a data field in the transaction widget or reports, you can create aliases for the data field.

What you should know

  • The Transaction Finder plugin allows you to create tables of transaction field aliases for multiple languages. If there is no existing table for the current language of the software, the default table is used.
  • If no alias is configured for a transaction field, the original value is displayed.
  • Transaction aliases are displayed in Security Desk. To view the latest configured aliases, operators must log out and then log back in.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select the Transaction templates plugin role from the entity browser, and click the Transaction aliases tab.
  3. (Optional) If you want to create aliases for multiple languages, do the following:
    1. Click the Add () button.
    2. Select a language.
    3. Click Select, then click Apply.
  4. Click the Add () button at the bottom of the page.
    The Select field dialog box opens.
  5. Select the field that you want to create the alias for, and click Select.
  6. In the Alias column, enter an alias for the field.
  7. Click Apply.


The Select field dialog boxes for the transaction widget and reports display the alias created for the field.
