About Linked objects

With the exception of the Processing-Context-In object, all objects used in the Structure and Processing tabs as part of the definition of the Input-Event are automatically linked and exported with the Input-Event. The Linked objects tab serves only as a visual reminder of the Processing-Context-In objects that you referenced in the definition of the Input-Event.

The dual list in the Linked objects tab enables you to select and link these Processing-Context-In objects which you must then export manually.

When you select a Processing-Context-In object, the system:

  • does not make any explicit link between it and the Input-Event in the database. There is no hard-wired data link between the Processing-Context-In object and the Input-Event, only a reference link. This is why you must export the Processing-Context-In object separately. [FOR DETAILS Links between objects]
  • associates the Processing-Context-In(s) with the Input-Event in the Object Dependencies Browser.
