Create a custom table to store domain information

Create a custom table to store domain information

You can use a custom table replacing the default domain table.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

Procedure

  1. Create a custom table to store the domain information. For example:
    Table Column name Type Reference
    u_organization u_name string
    u_organization u_description string
    u_organization u_location reference cmn_location
  2. Create a reference field within the custom table that refers back to the custom table. For example:
    Table Column name Type Reference
    u_organization parent reference u_organization
  3. Select the custom the table from the list of tables in the New Domain Table list.
  4. Click Reset Data to make these changes:
      • The domain table changes to the table you selected.
      • All existing records with a domain value are reset to the global domain.
      • All existing domain overrides are deleted.
      • All existing domain contains definitions are deleted.
      • All existing domain visibility settings, both user and group, are deleted.
  5. Click Ignore Data to make these changes:
      • The domain table changes to the table you selected.
      • All domain visibility settings, both user and group, are deleted.
      • All existing records with a domain value refer to invalid domains until you migrate the domain data.
      • All existing domain overrides refer to invalid domains until you migrate the domain data.
      • All existing domain contains definitions refer to invalid domains until you migrate the domain data.
      Note: Visibility settings are deleted whenever the domain table reference changes.

      When you select the ignore option, no existing domain-separated tables are moved to the global domain, and it is your responsibility to migrate the domain records. Until the migration is complete, the domain validator shows warnings about inconsistent domain data. If necessary, you can manually reset all domain-separated tables to the global domain.
