Example: Field mapping

The Category breakdown maps the Category field on the incident table to the Incident.Category breakdown source, which references the Choices[sys_choice_list] table.


In the first image, you see the Category breakdown with the Incident.Category breakdown source. This breakdown has a breakdown mapping to the Category field on the incident table.
