Re: How to create Unique Identifier in CDS?

Yes @yashag2255 it sounds good what we can do if we have multiple 'Mercedes'? This is my scenario user can able to create muliplte for example, consider in the Car entity we have 2 field one is car other one is model, user created a record with car as 'Mercedes' and another field is its model as "C class", and same like they created another record with same 'Mercedes' and model as "G class". In this scenario how we can manage it? so we don't have the unique identfier.

If we use filter query as 'Mercedes'  and the we need to put a loop to get what the record we want.. in this case it take time to filter the records right?

 

Hope you understand my scenarios

Re: How to create Unique Identifier in CDS?

Hi @hari 

 

Yep. Makes it better to understand now. In that case when you have multiple Mercedes and different models, what you can do is, in the filter query, put Name eq 'Mercedes' and Model eq 'C Class'. I am assuming the Model here will be unique. That way we can identify the record. My point here is in the entire record, there must be atleast 1 field that will have a unique value and the user should know that one. Makes sense?

 

Hope this Helps!
