Ways to add a check box to multiple document types

Hi, All,

I am working on a task to add a check box to more than 40 document types in cms, is there a more efficient way than opening the document type, adding the field, committing these document types? Can I use script to do so, if script can be used, how complicated is it going to be? Do I need to add in all the proprieties such as hipposysedit:mandatory, hipposysedit:multiple,hipposysedit:path etc… to the new field?

Thanks in advance for your help!


You can use a script, but you need to know very well how the cms works. The type editor handles these details for you. You should do this locally on one document type with autoexport turned on. Examine the changes made and do the same in your script.
