Enumerations

An enumeration (or enum for short) can be used to group values within a type. Enums can be useful to filter, and define certain content entries in your project.

For example, a product model may contain the enum COMMODITY, and values Digital and Physical.

Enums values can only contain alphanumeric characters, and underscores.
