How to define type 4 entity attribute as keyfield

Hi Everyone,

I have a requirement to assign the attribute of type 4 entity as key field, i tried checking the key field checkbox but it throws error

"If you want to create a key field for the entity type 4, choose the Relationships view".

How to achieve this?

Regards,

Bhuvaneswari

    You cannot make an attribute as Key Attribute in Type 4 entity.

    You can achieve this by 2 ways

    1.create the attribute (which you want to be a key field) as Type 3 entity and create a 'Qualifying' relationship between the type 3 entity and the type 4 entity.


    2.Else, create the key field as type 1 entity and create a 'Leading' relationship between the type 1 entity and type 4 entity.

    Both will add the field as key field to the Type 4 Entity.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Dilip
