Mapping case type or data type classes to a database table

Suggest edit Updated on March 18, 2021

Run the New Application wizard to create your initial case types and data types to create a default class group mapping for each case type and data type. The wizard creates the associated database tables and maps the new implementation class to the appropriate database table.

Mapping a class to a physical database table affects data storage and security decisions. For example, if you expect the volume of the case types to be low, consider sharing the table with other case types.

  1. In the navigation panel of Dev Studio, click App.

  2. Click SysAdminDatabase Table.

  3. Open the class that you want to modify.

  4. Review the default database name and the table name that the class points to.

  5. To point the chosen database table to your specific class, edit the database name and table name.

  6. To confirm your changes, click Save.

  7. Click Test connectivity to check if the configuration succeeded.

    If the test results display errors such as missing properties, review the data and correct them.

  8. Update the class to point to the table specified above.

    1. In the navigation panel of Dev Studio, click App.
    2. Right-click the class name that you referred to in the steps above and select Definition.
    3. On the General tab, click Test connection to check if the configuration succeeded.
  9. Perform the steps above for any other case type or data type classes, if needed.
