Options Source

Configuring form field options sources

Certain form fields work from a set of pre-populated options that your user will want to select from, such as the Radio or Select fields. This source can be configured several ways, as described below.

Static configured on the form schema

The options will be defined directly on your form schema, the only way to modify them in the future will be to change the form definition itself.

The static options group will appear to allow the configuration of the individual options.

For each of these options, a unique value corresponding to the form submitted data must be provided, as well as a label which will be displayed to the user filling in the form. You may configure as many options as you want by using the add (+) button in the group header.

Input data driven by process data

The options are mapped from form variables, similarly to how Form field data binding works. Here, the Input values key property within the Dynamic Options configuration group is used to set which form variable to use as a source.

The expected format for the data is an array of options, each defining its label and value in JSON. The below example provides an equivalent configuration to the above statically defined one:

"languageData": [
"label": "French",
"value": "fr"
"label": "English (UK)",
"value": "en-gb"
"label": "German",
"value": "de"
