limit related entities to records with specific property value

I have a hierarchical entity, Org Structure with a Choice property, Unit type.  It is a lookup property on the Profit Centre table. Profit Centres may only be related to Org Structures of type "department". 


I've created a "Department view" to use on forms. But this still allows form creators to make a form where the business requirement would not be enforced. Granted that this is a low risk, but I'd prefer to forbid relationships with Org Structures of the wrong type. Is there a way of doing this?

Hi @halifaxious 


I guess you could put business rules or real time validation workflow  or simple Javascript or Plugin (c# code) to validate when profit centre records gets saved, user select valid Org Structure record...


another way to may be restrict user to see only Org Structure record of department type … to done here ...   (although user might still change view so better to do validation as suggested above)..


see if this helps...
