Adding the MC_Proxy_ID field

  • Go to Setup and select the object you are going to mobilise from the left-hand Build -> Customize menu structure. In the below screenshot we are going to add the MC_Proxy_ID field to the Accounts object.
  • Select the Fields menu item
Customising the Accounts sObject

  • On the next screen (Step 3. Establish field-level security) if you are in developer environment you can just accept the defaults, but in production it is good to ensure that any profiles for users who you are going to deploy mobile apps to have read/write access.
  • On the following page (Step 4. Add to page layout) untick all options and click Save. You should now have successfully added the required MC_Proxy_ID field to the sObject.
