Administration | Structure
The Structure menu provides options for viewing, modifying and extending your database structure:
- Manage Base Field Types. Allows you to edit common fields used across multiple record types.
- View Schemas & Structure. The other options available under Structure provide a detailed description of record type schema and usage.
Manage Base Field Types
You can edit common fields used across multiple record types, in a similar fashion to using the Build option.
The Used In field shows the number field types that use this base record type. Click on the number to get a list of the field types:
Important. Any changes to a base field will be transmitted through to all field types that are based on it, with possible unintended consequences. Therefore, be ultra-cautious about making any changes here. If you choose to delete a base field type (most are locked), be sure to first remove any use instances first,
To add a new base field type, select Define New Field Type. (These fields are described in Define Field Type).
View Schemas & Structure
This listing shows a detailed description of record type schema and usage for simple field types (text, numeric, terms, dates, geospatial and files) for each record type, along with internal codes and occurrence in the database.
This listing shows a detailed description of record type schema and usage for record pointers and relationship markers for each record type, along with internal codes and occurrence in the database. Pointer fields are indicated by [pointer], relationship marker fields by [relationship]. Pointed-to record types are separated by ||. For constrained pointers, all defined target record types are listed. For unconstrained pointers, target record types present are listed.
Relationships not defined by a relationship marker are not included in the counts.
This listing shows a detailed description of both simple fields and relationships.
