The globally unique identifier (GUID) of an outline code or enterprise custom field.


Parent Elements

OutlineCode, ExtendedAttribute


Minimum: 0 for local custom fields; 1 for outline codes and enterprise custom fields.

Maximum: 1

Text Value

A text value of type string is required. The string must be in the form "HHHHHHHH-HHHH-HHHH-HHHH-HHHHHHHHHHHH" where H represents a hexadecimal digit between 0 and F.


For the ExtendedAttribute element, Guid is the custom field GUID.

For the OutlineCode element, Guid is the outline code GUID. Local outline codes and enterprise custom fields and require the Guid element; local custom fields do not.


In the following example, Text1 is a local task custom field, which does not include the Guid element. Health is an enterprise custom field, which uses the Guid element to represent the GUID of the enterprise custom field.

    <Alias>Test Task CF</Alias>
