Effects of object definitions when displaying interface forms

Interface forms that need to be valid for all entries in a database table are allocated a general object definition. Other limited object definitions can have more interface forms. If an entry is selected in the user interface, the currently valid object definitions are used to gather all the interface forms and display them in the user interface in their sort order in the task view and in the context menu.

Example

The following object definitions with interface forms are set up for the table Person.

Table 44: Example: Interface Forms for Object Definitions
Object definition Assigned Interface Form
Person Business roles
Person_with_ADUserAccount Active Directory user accounts
Person_with_LDAPAccount LDAP user accounts

The following interface forms are displayed for an employee object that meets the object definition Person_with_ADUserAccount:

  • Business roles
  • Active Directory user accounts

The following interface forms are displayed for an employee object that meets the object definition Person_with_LDAPAccount:

  • Business roles
