Improved Specification

Posted on September 8, 2017 by Editor

The XBRL Standards Board has approved the publication of Extensible Enumerations 2.0 as a Public Working Draft. Extensible Enumerations allow taxonomies to define concepts that must take their value from a list of prescribed values. Extensible Enumerations provides benefits found in other XBRL features, including multi-lingual labeling, modification of the allowed values by extension taxonomies, and classification of the values in hierarchies for ease of presentation. Version 2.0 is an evolution of Extensible Enumerations 1.0, enabling the creation of concepts that allow multiple values to be selected.

Version 2.0 replaces earlier drafts released as version 1.1, with the switch to 2.0 reflecting a significant change in the technical approach taken.

The Public Working Draft can be found here.  Comments are welcomed.
