Browsing through Adobe Experience Platform fields friendly-names-display

When defining event payload, field group payload and selecting fields in the expression editor, the display name is displayed in addition to the field name. This information is retrieved from the schema definition in the Experience Data Model.

If descriptors such as “xdm:alternateDisplayInfo” are provided while setting up schemas, the user-friendly names will replace display names. It is especially useful when working with “eVars” and generic fields.You can configure friendly name descriptors via an API call. For more information, see the Schema Registry developer guide.

If a friendly name is available, then the field will be displayed as <friendly-name>(<name>). If no friendly name is available, the display name will appear, for example <display-name>(<name>). If none of them are defined, only the technical name of the field will be displayed <name>.

Friendly names are not retrieved when you select fields from a union of schemas.
