Editing Foreign Key Filters

Components of a column-dependent reference can be edited for a foreign key filter.

To edit a filter for foreign keys

  1. Open the tab Column-dependent references and select an option on the tab Foreign key filters.
  2. Enable the check box for the selected entry.

    If there is a custom value for this entry, the value in shown in the Component (Customized).

    When you enable the entry a custom value is added, as in configuring the web project, which corresponds to the default value.

    The control box cannot be disabled if the foreign key is customized.

  3. Specify a filter by clicking in the Filter on and create a filter.

    You can limit foreign key values with the help of the filter.

  1. Open the Column-dependent references tab and select the desired entry on the Edit foreign key values tab.
  2. Enable the check box for the selected entry.

    If there is a custom value for this entry, the value in shown in the Component (Customized).

    The selected component is the one to be used in the default web application.

    NOTE: Instead of selecting a component, you can delete the configured entry using .

To edit multi-value foreign key values

  • Proceed as in the step-by-step for 'To edit foreign key values'.

    NOTE: Use the Edit multi-valued foreign key values tab, to offer components in the same context in the Web Portal any number of times.

Using a Column Dependent Reference

Note: A cursor must be on the collection to be able to add a column-dependent reference.

To add a column-dependent reference

  1. Select a control node (a container, for example) with the right mouse button.
  2. Select Column-dependent references.
  3. Assign the added node to the collection and the edited property.

Object-Dependent References

Components are referenced on the basis of two factors in the case of object-dependent references:

  • Reference type specified on the reference node
  • Reference object identified by its object key

NOTE: Use the setting Only apply object-dependent references that are explicitly assigned to this project to ensure that only object-dependent references explicitly assigned to this web project apply. If this option is not set, both the assigned object-dependent references as well as object-dependent references without assignments are taken into account. This option is set by default.

You can find the setting Only apply object-dependent references that are explicitly assigned to this project in the Node editor window.
