Native Fields

Fields are values associated with a Mambu entity such as a client, group, or loan account. For example, the client entity includes several fields by default for storing information about each client, such as ID, email address, and creation date. Native fields are fields Mambu provides by default.

As a general rule, you are not able to edit native fields. If you want to create specific fields for your organization then you must use custom fields. For more information, see Custom Fields.

The exception to this rule is a set of native fields that are associated with the client entity. For more information, see Client native fields.

Native fields in the Mambu UI

Native fields are visible throughout the Mambu UI. If the field is outlined in green, then it is a required field.

Native fields when using API v1 and v2

Native fields are also present in the JSON objects that you use to work with API v1 and API v2. Native fields always come before custom fields in a JSON object. Custom fields are always nested inside custom field sets.

To distinguish a native field from a custom field, you must look at the property name in the JSON object. If the property name starts with an underscore _, it is a custom field set and the fields nested within it are custom fields - otherwise a property in the JSON object is a native field. For more information, see our API Reference.

Managing native fields

To change the display language of all the native fields in the Mambu UI, you may edit your language settings. For more information, see Language Settings.

Please Note

Custom fields and a specific set of client native fields are not translated when the Mambu display language changes. You must edit them by going to Administration > Fields. For more information, see Client native fields and Custom Fields.
