Add and manage properties

Link to this section

For properties to be available in a user or organization record, they first need to exist in your business. This topic describes how to create and edit properties.

You can also create and manage properties through the Kinde Management API.

Add a property

Link to this section

You can add properties directly in Kinde, or via API.

  1. In Kinde, go to Settings > Data management > Properties.
  2. Select Add Property.
  1. In the Add property window:
    1. Enter a Name for the property.
    2. (Optional) Add a short description. Note that this description will appear when someone goes to edit the value of a property in a User or Organization record.
    3. Assign a Key to the property. This needs to be unique so that you can identify it in your code. The key cannot be changed later. Note that any Kinde included properties start with kp-.
    4. Select whether the property needs to remain Private. If you switch this off, the property can be selected to be included in tokens. See Add and manage properties in tokens.
    5. Select if the property is for User or Organization information.
    6. Select a Property category. Use an existing one or create your own, see Create property categories.
  2. Select the field format.
  3. Select Save.

Edit a property

Link to this section

You can change the name and some property settings, but not all attributes can be edited. For example, you cannot change the property key.

⚠️ Take care changing the availability of a property to be included in tokens, such as switching a property from public to private. This could cause a breaking change if the property is already used in tokens. See Add and manage properties in tokens.

  1. In Kinde, go to Settings > Data management > Properties.
  2. Search or scroll for the property you want and select the three dots next to the property.
  3. Choose Edit property.
  4. Make the changes you want and select Save.
