Creating an association

Updated on April 5, 2022

Define a relationship between two classes by creating an association.

  1. In Dev Studio, click CreateData ModelAssociation.
  2. In the Label field, enter a description of this association.
  3. In the Identifier field, enter a short but meaningful prefix for each association that describes the relationship between the classes. Association names are used as a prefix to property names in the Report Viewer and the report definition rule form.
    Note: Do not use a prefix that is an SQL reserved word, such as SELECT, ORDER, or JOIN.
  4. In the Apply to field, select a class to which this association rule applies.
  5. Click Create and open.
  6. Click Save.
What to do next: Configure how the association links the context class to another class using simple and complex associations.
