Updating the basic information of a foreign key from the Properties view


About this task

You can update the foreign key basic information as needed from the Properties view.


  1. In the Data Model Entities area, click the foreign key element, and then in the Properties view, click the Relationship tab.
  2. From the Foreign Key tab, you can select:
    • Render in the main tab: to display the foreign key element in the main tab.

    • Enforce FK integrity: to enable foreign key integrity validation, that is, to raise an error whenever a user tries to delete a record if the record is linked to any other records through this foreign key.

    • Allow FK integrity override: to allow users to delete a record even if it is linked to another record through this foreign key.

    For more information about the combined usage of the last two options, see Enabling foreign key integrity checking.
