How do you access fields that are added to the tenant object

We added several fields, but they don't show up in the list of fields for the current customer. When using the get field value API, we get some permission error.

Did you add Fields to customer object?

Permissions error you can resolve by enabling Server API role permissions

Object Definition -> Permissions -> Edit Permissions -> Server API (Select All) -> Save

Fields are added to the customer object.

Setting the server API role permissions didn't work. The field we are trying to access from the Tenant (customer object) is a URL which we need to access on the client. We tried putting the 'getFieldData' call in a formula field so it would be run on the server, but that didn't work either.

Hi Steve,

I just found that this is not possible with the current design. We have restrictions on customer object. Only system fields can be accessed from Tenant.

A possible way to achieve this would be to put up a properties file in Amazon S3 and access it on serverside, parse it and use the data (URL value) as required.
