        "CMS": {
          "DataTypes": {
            "CanBeChanged": "True"


    Gets or sets a value indicating if data types can be changed after they've been used.

    Valid values:

    • "True"
      • Allows data types to be changed after creation. This can lead to data on content is not valid on the data type.
    • "False"
      • Disallow data type changes. (Recommeded value, unless you really know what you are doing)
    • "FalseWithHelpText"
      • Disallow data type changes, but show the users a help text so they understand why.
