Data Field Types

Here you'll find a list of all available data types for use in the inputs and output schemas.

If you are familiar with the JSON schema format this will look very familiar.

All fields have the same fundamental structure:

anyField:
  title: A human readable name #A friendly name for the user - required
  type: string #The type goes here - required
  sortOrder: 1 #The sort order of the fields - not required

Primitive Types

Primitive types are all types available in JSON normally:

  • string
  • number
  • boolean

Which all have the same structure as seen below:

stringField:
  title: A string field
  type: string
  sortOrder: 1
numberField:
  title: A number field
  type: string
  sortOrder: 2
booleanField:
  title: A boolean field
  type: boolean
  sortOrder: 3

Complex Types (Objects and Arrays)

Complex types are types that consists of other types.

  • object
  • array

Objects are defined similar to how JSON Schema defines them:

objectField:
  title: A object field
  type: object
  sortOrder: 1
  properties: #For objects with no fixed or known type simply skip defining properties
    mySubField:
      type: string
      title: This is a field belonging to the object

Arrays are also defined similar to how JSON Schema defines them:

arrayField:
  title: A object field
  type: array
  sortOrder: 1
  items: #This has a schema identical to fields
    type: string #Could also be object

Or you can combine them:

arrayField:
  title: A object field
  type: object
  sortOrder: 1
  items:
    type: object
    properties:
      mySubField:
        type: string
        title: This is a field belonging to the object

File or Image

Lastly Dexi also supports files and/or image types for transferring binary contents

  • file
  • image

The structure of these are quite similar to the primitive types

fileField:
  title: A file field
  type: file
  sortOrder: 1
imageField:
  title: An image field
  type: image
  sortOrder: 2

Note: when receiving files you will be receiving a so-called "Dexi File Pointer" - which contains a small piece of meta information about the file - not the file itself.

You can read more about file pointers here here.
