How can I show custom fields on a Contacts module subview?

In our main Sugar 7.9 instance, we have several custom fields defined via a custom package.  This field (ppl_cd) appears in both the Desktop version of the web application, as well as through the v10 REST API when fetching a specific Contact record.  However through the mobile SDK, I am unable to find the field and its data in the object. 


Here is a code snippet showing how I am trying to get the Contact record's data from within a subview of the Contact module detail-view:  


initialize(options) {
    // Store the Contact record's data in an instance variable for form submission
    this.contactData =;


I see available within the contactData object all Sugar-default fields (first_name, phone_work, id, etc), but none of our custom-defined fields.  For reference, our Contact custom fields are currently defined through Contacts/Ext/Vardefs inside a custom package.


How can I access the values of custom Contact fields from within the mobile application?
