            DataClassification = CustomerContent;

        Field(2; "Group Description"; text[100])
            DataClassification = CustomerContent;

        key(PK1; GroupCode)
            Clustered = true;


2. Create New page

page 50100 "SetupPage"
    PageType = ListPart;
    SourceTable = SetupTable;
                field(GroupCode; GroupCode)
                    ApplicationArea = All;
                    ToolTip = 'Select the specified group code';
                field("Group Description"; "Group Description")
                    ApplicationArea = All;
                    ToolTip = 'Specifies a description.';

Step 3 :- Now use new assisted setup module to create assisted setup as below

codeunit 50100 "SetupTableAssistedSetup"

        AssistedSetup: Codeunit "Assisted Setup";
        AssistedSetupGroup: Enum "Assisted Setup Group";
        CurrentGlobalLanguage: Integer;
        SetupWizardTxt: Label 'Set up Table';
        SetupWizardLinkTxt: Label '', Locked = true;

        AlreadySetUpQst: Label 'Setup is already set up. To change settings for it, go to the setup again.Do you want go there now ?';

    [EventSubscriber(ObjectType::Codeunit, Codeunit::"Assisted Setup", 'OnRegister', '', false, false)]
    local procedure SetupInitialize()

        CurrentGlobalLanguage := GlobalLanguage();
        AssistedSetup.Add(GetAppId(), PAGE::SetupPage, SetupWizardTxt, AssistedSetupGroup::Extensions, '', SetupWizardLinkTxt);
        AssistedSetup.AddTranslation(GetAppId(), PAGE::SetupPage, 1033, SetupWizardTxt);

    [EventSubscriber(ObjectType::Codeunit, Codeunit::"Assisted Setup", 'OnReRunOfCompletedSetup', '', false, false)]
    local procedure OnReRunOfCompletedSetup(ExtensionId: Guid; PageID: Integer; var Handled: Boolean)
        if ExtensionId <> GetAppId() then
        case PageID of
            Page::"Assisted Company Setup Wizard":
                    if Confirm(AlreadySetUpQst, true) then
                    Handled := true;

    local procedure GetAppId(): Guid
        Info: ModuleInfo;
        EmptyGuid: Guid;
        if Info.Id() = EmptyGuid then

    local procedure GetInformationSetupStatus()
        SetupTab: Record SetupTable;
        SetupTab.SetFilter(GroupCode, '<>%1', '');
        If SetupTab.IsEmpty() then
        AssistedSetup.Complete(GetAppId(), Page::SetupPage);
