Define auto-complete attributes for all references to a table A field inherits and uses the reference table's auto-complete attributes unless the field has its own value for the same attributes. You can define the attributes for references to a table, and it affects every form that references that table. Before you beginRole required: personalize_dictionary About this task A field-level attribute overrides a table-level attribute of the same name. If a field uses different reference attributes from those that are defined for the reference table, then the field uses both sets of attributes. Use these steps to define auto-complete attributes for all fields in a table that do not already have their own auto-complete attributes. This example describes how to define auto-complete attributes for all references to the User [sys_user] table. Note: A field's auto-complete attribute value supersedes a table's auto-complete attribute value. This means that any existing field-level value for an auto-complete attribute supersedes any value the administrator applies to the auto-complete attribute from the reference table. Procedure Navigate to a form of the target table, such as User Administration > Users. Right-click the column header and click Configure > Dictionary. Select the row that does not list a column name. This row is typically the first row in the list. For example, select the first sys_user link. Under Related Links, click Advanced view. In the Attributes field, enter a comma-separated list of auto-complete attributes you want to apply to all fields in the table. For example, to display the user's department with all references to the sys_user table, enter: ref_auto_completer=AJAXTableCompleter,ref_ac_columns=department,ref_ac_order_by=department Click Update. What to do nextTo test the new auto-complete attributes, open a form that references the User [sys_user] table, such as an open incident. Enter a single character in the Assigned to field. The auto-complete options now include both the user name and department.
