Intershop Order Management (IOM) has the ability to add additional information to various business objects, e.g., for return requests, with the help of predefined custom properties. This document describes the basic concepts of custom properties and the configuration of predefined custom properties within the IOM.

As a concept of customization, the IOM uses custom properties in order to add additional information to various business objects. The following objects are based on this concept:
The concept also provides the ability to store additional information in the form of property group, property key and property value.
The property group can be used to group/categorize the properties.
The property key is the identifier of the custom property . It has to be unique per property group.
|The property value is used to store the custom information.
Because it may be necessary or helpful under certain circumstances (e.g., custom additional information is useful or required), the IOM extended the concept of custom properties by having the ability to configure a predefined property group, property key pairs in a shop and business object-related context.
