I'm trying to find the right verb for database documentation. I have to write a lot of these and it is very long; so I am working for a consistent and reusable way to phrase this.
What I have now:
This tag is assigned if the field FieldName is Value.
It may look like
This tag is assigned if the field City is Chicago.
I'm struggling with the 2nd is.
Perhaps the following:
This tag is assigned if the FieldName contains Value.
That may be a little open-ended if one value is expected.
This tag is assigned if the FieldName value is Value.
What verb would you choose in this case, or how would you rework the sentence?
For context, I'm trying to document an SQL query like:
select * from locations where city = 'chicago'
