I'm a new developer in salesforce, and just realize that there are some "attribute fields" (i don't know if that's the correct name) but i cant figure it out where are those field "set"/"declare".

Fields like "isWon" or "isClosed" in the Opportunity Object, i just cant find where are declared ( i cant see those fields in the Opportunity - "Fields & Relationship section, BUT i can see those fields/attributes in the formula settings for validation rules).

Example: The field/attribute "Closed (API Name isClosed)" enter image description here

BUT is not in the Fields & Relationship section :( enter image description here

    All fields are listed in the SOAP Api documentation. Here's the one related to the Opportunity object: developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.218.0.api.meta/api/…. You can also check the other objects thanks to the navigation menu on the left. – Martin Lezer Apr 9 '19 at 13:56
  • @[Martin Lezer] You should write that as an answer, maybe expanding slightly to say that their ability to be directly set is also included in that reference. – Thomas Taylor Apr 9 '19 at 15:06
  • oh! perfect! yes @MartinLezer thats exactly what i was looking for!; and yes if you can write that as an answer so i can select it! thanks a lot! – Alberto Alan Sagastegui Rdz Apr 10 '19 at 14:29

All fields are listed in the SOAP Api documentation. Here's the one related to the Opportunity sObject: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.218.0.api.meta/api/sforce_api_objects_opportunity.htm.

Each operation available on the field is noted in "Properties".

In your case, you can see that the IsClosed and IsWon fields can't be updated because the operations listed are: Defaulted on create, Filter, Group, Sort

Finally, You can also check the other objects thanks to the navigation menu on the left.

The IsClosed and IsWon fields are available in reporting, process builders, workflow rules, validation Rules and formulas.

They cannot be accessed from fields and relationship section neither can be added to the page layout.

IsClosed field is marked as true if the Opportunity is in a Stage marked as Closed/Lost or Closed/Won Stage, else it is false Similarly, IsWon field is marked as true if the Opportunity is in a Stage marked as Closed/Won Stage, else it is false
