Data Children

  • Select a DataElement in a diagram, and click on Edit Data Children in the properties sidebar
  • DataElement Inspector
  • Select a link field pointing to the parent element, and click on Is Data Child in the properties sidebar

The browser lists all potential Data Childs – all fields across the entire application that point to the selected Data Element.

Invalid Data Childs are listed as well. They are visibly marked as invalid and selecting them will provide you with a list of validation rules.

When Automatically Add Finders is selected, adding a Data Child will add a proper finder (if not already present) to the child element. However the Finder will not be removed when the Data Child has been removed, as it may be used elsewhere.


Data Child can be added from a child field; this is functionally equivalent to the browser with Automatically Add Finders enabled.
