I am looking for a way to add additional metadata to object fields for use by some Salesforce and non-Salesforce UI code. What I need is a small piece of custom JSON per field. (Yes I could create a separate custom API to deliver this data.)
The "Description" looked like a candidate place to put the JSON, but that is not exposed in e.g. these APIs:
I could add the info on the end of the "Help Text" (
inlineHelpText) but would then need to strip that off.
Is there an API that returns the "Description" of a field along with the rest of the field metadata?
