About this task

The following example shows how to update a master data record in the entity Product.


  1. Open the data record you want to update by following Opening a master data record in an entity.
    Note: An asterisk (*) is displayed beside the name of each mandatory attributes. You will not be able to save the data record before you fill in all these fields.
  2. Edit any of the modifiable attributes according to your needs.

    For a numeric type attribute, you can adjust the number in a small range to add one or subtract one by clicking the spin button on the right.

    For a date or dateTime type attribute, you can set its value by using the datetime picker.

    If the entity has foreign key links to other entities, an Add foreign records button will be displayed under the name of each foreign key attribute for configuring the foreign key information. In this example, the entity product is linked to a specific entity Store.

    To add a foreign key value, click Add foreign records for the foreign key attribute Store, from the dialog box displayed, select the check box next to each foreign key value that needs to be linked to the record, and click the VALIDATE button to save your changes.

    Note: If the maximum number of occurrences of the foreign key element has been reached, the newly selected foreign key will not be associated with the data record.

    To remove a foreign key value, hover over the row of the foreign key value, click the Remove the record button displayed on first cell.

    Note: Removing a foreign key value does not delete any real data, it only removes the link between data records in two entities.
  3. Click SAVE to update the record.
