    Hi Saurabh,

    Custom metadata is customizable, deployable, packageable, and upgradeable application metadata. First, you create a custom metadata type, which defines the form of the application metadata. Then you build reusable functionality that determines the behavior based on metadata of that type. Similar to a custom object or custom setting, a custom metadata type has a list of custom fields that represent aspects of the metadata.

    Custom metadata types support the following custom field types

    • Metadata Relationship
    • Checkbox
    • Date
    • Date and Time
    • Email
    • Number
    • Percent
    • Phone
    • Picklist
    • Text
    • Text Area
    • URL
