In your ONIXEDIT preferences dialog under Server Edition/Custom fields tab, you will find a list where you can define custom fields:



Custom fields are non-ONIX data that you can add to any of your ONIX records when using ONIXEDIT Server.

You can also use custom fields in the special search tool available with ONIXEDIT Server.
