2515224 - Free text for National ID format


If we do not have any specific format for field like "Apprentice Registration Number" in CSF data module,  could we maintain free text , Could be Alphabetic or Numeric or Alphanumeric, 

Any text for ID type (There is no specific format for this id type) in national id portlet.


Employee Central


National id  Portlet is developed considering nation id of different country where they follow different format. Free text has been not supported as of now in national id format.  We should have fix number of length and We can change regular expression. It is possible but not possible with unlimited field length.

  We would recommend to use custom field  of personal information or job information to meet the requirement.
