Association rules -

Records can be created in various ways. You can add a new record to your application or copy an existing one. You can specialize existing rules by creating a copy in a specific ruleset, against a different class or (in some cases) with a set of circumstance definitions. You can copy data instances but they do not support specialization because they are not versioned.

Create an association rule by selecting Association from the SysAdmin category.

Key parts:

An association rule has two key parts:

Field Description
Apply to Select a class that this Association rule applies to.

The list of available class names depends on the ruleset you select. Each class can restrict applying rules to an explicit set of rulesets as specified on the Advanced tab of the class form.

Identifier Select a prefix for this association rule. Start with a letter and use only letters and digits.

Use a short but meaningful prefix for each association that correctly describes the relationship between the classes, because association names are used to prefix property names in the Report Viewer and the report definition rule form.

Note: Do not enter a prefix that is an SQL reserved word, such as SELECT, ORDER, or JOIN.
