The Enumeration configuration object is intended to describe a structure for storing constant value sets that cannot be modified at run time. On the basis of an Enumeration object the platform creates a database table that stores a set of constant values.
In practice, this object can store options for calculating prices (such as "VAT included" or "without VAT"). The assortment of enumeration values is defined during configuration development and users cannot add, modify, or delete values.
This leads us to an important enumeration feature: enumerated values are significant to the configuration, and 1C:Enterprise script algorithms can rely on them.
