How to use the com.hybris.cockpitng.editor.defaultmap Editor in cockpitng

Hi, we try to use the maptype in our items.xml, because we have many fields which have value per lets call it "CustomMapKeyType". So we declare in the items.xml:

             <maptype code="custommappable:java.lang.String"

     <itemtype code="CustomMapKeyType"
             <attribute qualifier="code" type="java.lang.String" >
                 <persistence type="property"/>
             <attribute qualifier="name" type="java.lang.String">                    
                 <modifiers initial="true" optional="false" />
                 <persistence type="property"/>

             <index name="CustomMapKeyTypeCodeIx" unique="true">
                 <key attribute="code" />

and then for some other type's property like this:

 <attribute qualifier="custommappableTitle" type="custommappable:java.lang.String">

In the -backoffice-config.xml we have for the editor area:

 <ea:attribute qualifier="custommappableTitle" />

When we show our custommappableTitle field in the editor it is picking the "com.hybris.cockpitng.editor.defaultmap" editor, but if I click on the "+" sign to add values it is showing empty value for "Key". In the hmc I am able to fill this attribute and the values added are shown in the cockpitng with the CustomMapKeyType(PK) format.

Do you have any hints how to populate the "Key" field for the "com.hybris.cockpitng.editor.defaultmap" editor when adding value?

    please share the definition of CustomMapKeyType. I will give it a try while it should work out of the box.

    Cheers, WOjtek

      Hi Wojciech, I added it to the question above. One thing I see is that we define the uniqueness of the "code" property in an index instead with the "unique" attribute, is it possible that this is the issue?

    I have tried it and apparently the use case is not supported in backjoffice. Since this is a serious problem I will report an improvement (a blocker) and my team will try to fill this gap as soon as possible.

    Cheers, Wojtek
