To inactivate a custom defined field:

  1. From the Customisation menu, select Data Inventory Manager.
  2. The Data Inventory Manager window displays.
  3. From the left pane of the Data Inventory Manager window, select the item and data category that contains the CDF you would like to inactivate.
  4. From the right pane of the Data Inventory Manager window, click the row of the custom defined field you would like to inactivate.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • Click the UserManual CDFStatusIndicator.png button. The status of the CDF changes to Inactive.
    • Click the FieldViewIcon.png button to display the CDF Editor window. From the CDF Editor window, uncheck the Active checkbox and click the Save button.
