Common Data Model Object Update

Another question:


Is there a way to update objects that would be more "sql" like - updating only the fields that I actually want to change? Currently I have to rewrite the whole object (or I get error messages saying thar required values are not filled in - they do not change...).

For updating objects any empty field should be simply left in the current state...

Re: Common Data Model Object Update


the first tab (not fully visible) is Get entity data.


The idea is to use a filter, so that resulting array will have either 1 element (if the filter matches) or 0 elements (if there is no element in the database) and then use a condition to direct execution in the right direction.
