Re: Links

Hello,

You have not explained what you need exactly.

 

Just to create link 0 in SM command line type link. In the new opened window  input link name and click on add.

 

BUT I am pretty sure that this will not be enough for you. Write detailed information about your task!

Re: Links

Just  as small add on:

There are 2 types of link, master link and form dedicated. Master link  has a name, same as an object (table name), form dedicated has a name, same as the form name.

Re: Links

1)type link in the command line :

2)Tailoting->Tailoring tools->Links

3)Ex: If you want to populate the Affected Service(field name=affected.item) for the bizservice type from device table:

link file: incidents

source field: affected.item

Target File Name: device

Target Field Name: logical.name

Add Query: $query

Right click and select "Select Line" option.

Expressions Tab:

if ($fill.skip.master=true) then ($fill.skip=true;cleanup($fill.skip.master))
$query="device.type=\"bizservice\""
if (not null(affected.item in $File)) then $query+=(" and logical.name#\""+affected.item in $File+"\"")

 

Source Field Name: affected.item

Target Field Name: logical.name

 

What the above query will do is:, when you click the fill button in sd.open.interaction or sd.update.interaction, then it will query the device table to and will return all the CI's whose CI Types="bizservice".

 

Hope the above information would have helped you to some extent.

Assign kudos if the above inputs is helpfull to you.

Thanks and Cheers !!!
