In order to make the Custom Fields visible, please make sure the "Enable Administrative Domains" option is checked in Provisioning. If you want to hide the Custom Fields, please disable the "Enable Administrative Domains" option in Provisioning.

If you do not have access to Provisioning, please engage your implementation partner or create an incident for the LOD-SF-EP-ADM Team.
