Configure mApp Conditions

Use the mApp Conditions window to configure conditions that control which definitions in a mApp are imported into a target system. When you configure conditions for a mApp definition, you create a list of system definitions or Features (defined in mApp Properties). A mApp definition is only imported into a target system if the definition listed in the condition is imported/overwritten, or if the Feature it belongs to is imported. You can configure conditions for Business Objects/Fields, Forms, Grids, Relationships, Form Arrangements, and CSM Items.

Good to know:

  • If you add definitions to a mApp using the References window, a condition is automatically set up to only import the definition into a target system if the item using it is also imported (or already exists in the target system).

To configure mApp Conditions:

  1. Open the mApp Conditions window:
    • Select the Import Based on Condition check box, and then click the Ellipses button Ellipses Button in the following areas:
      • Business Object Properties window
      • Relationship Properties window
      • Field Properties window

        Note: Business Objects and Fields can only have conditions based on Features. Other items can have conditions based on other definitions being imported.

    • Select the Import Based on Condition check box, and then click the Ellipses button Ellipses Button in the mApps Options window in the following areas:
      • Form Editor
      • Grid Editor
      • Form Arrangement Editor
      • CSM Item Managers

  2. Add a definition to the list of conditions:
    1. Click Add to open a menu of definitions organized by type (ex: Business Object). The list shows all definitions included in the mApp, along with all defined Features (except when adding conditions for Fields and Business Objects, which can only have conditions based on Features).
    2. Hover over a category to open a menu of specific definitions.
    3. Select a definition to add it to the list.
  3. Add additional definitions to the list as necessary.

    Tip: Click Remove to remove a selected definition from the list. Use the Up/Down arrows Arrow Down Black Arrow Up Black to change the order of the selected definitions.

  4. Click OK.
