Back to the entity model.



Property Column Constraints Type Description
id* AD_Preference_ID Mandatory
Max Length: 32
java.lang.String Personal Preference, a default value that will be used by a user.
client AD_Client_ID Mandatory ADClient A Client is a company or a legal entity. You cannot share data between Clients.
organization AD_Org_ID Mandatory Organization An organization is a unit of your client or legal entity - examples are store, department. You can share data between organizations.
active IsActive Mandatory java.lang.Boolean There are two methods of making records unavailable in the system: One is to delete the record, the other is to de-activate the record. A de-activated record is not available for selection, but available for reporting. There are two reasons for de-activating and not deleting records:

(1) The system requires the record for auditing purposes. (2) The record is referenced by other records. E.g., you cannot delete a Business Partner, if there are existing invoices for it. By de-activating the Business Partner you prevent it from being used in future transactions.

creationDate Created Mandatory java.util.Date The Created field indicates the date that this record was created.
createdBy CreatedBy Mandatory ADUser The Created By field indicates the user who created this record.
updated Updated Mandatory java.util.Date The Updated field indicates the date that this record was updated.
updatedBy UpdatedBy Mandatory ADUser The Updated By field indicates the user who updated this record.
window AD_Window_ID ADWindow The Window field identifies a unique Window in the system.
userContact AD_User_ID ADUser The User identifies a unique user in the system. This could be an internal user or a business partner contact
attribute# Attribute Max Length: 60 java.lang.String A defined characteristic of a specific product.
searchKey Value Max Length: 20000 java.lang.String A search key allows for a fast method of finding a particular record. If you leave the search key empty, the system automatically creates a numeric number originating from a document sequence defined in the "Document Sequence" window. The sequence naming convention follows a rule "DocumentNo_TableName", where TableName is the actual name of the database table (e.g. C_Order).

Usually, company's internal identifiers for various records (products, customers, etc) are stored here.

property# Property Max Length: 60 java.lang.String It is the "Configuration Property" this record sets value to.

Configuration Properties are defined by modules with the purpose other modules are capable to assign them values.

propertyList IsPropertyList Mandatory java.lang.Boolean When this field is checked, the preference is defined by Property which is a selectable value from a drop down list. Properties are defined by modules.

In case the field is not checked, the preference is defined by Attribute, which is a free text name.

visibleAtClient VisibleAt_Client_ID ADClient Defines which is the preference's visibility at client level. If this value is empty the preference will be visible from all Clients.
visibleAtOrganization VisibleAt_Org_ID Organization Defines which is the preference's visibility at Organization level. The preference will be visible from all organizations in the tree bellow this one. If this value is empty the preference will be visible from all Organizations.
visibleAtRole VisibleAt_Role_ID ADRole Defines which is the preference's visibility at Role level. If this value is empty the preference will be visible from all Roles.
selected Selected Mandatory java.lang.Boolean In case of conflict (multiple values for a single property), this field must be checked for one of them in order to pick this one over the rest.
module AD_Module_ID ADModule Indicates the module the element forms part of.
