Update other entity

Hi There, I have three entities Project, Tool and Component. In all the three entities there is a common field (Proj_No and CER_No).  So in this case, if I add Proj_No and CER_No in Project entity then the same is getting added into other two entities (Which is working fine using microflow) but if I change the CER_No in Project entity then the same number should be updated into Tool and component entity (which I need help). Any help here is much appreciated.   Thanks, Gopi

There is a nice blogpost about inheritance in Mendix which could save you some of the effort around this https://www.mendix.com/blog/working-with-inheritance-saving-you-time-and-sanity/

Maybe you can make use of it :)


Why do these 3 entities have a shared attribute? I would expect these attributes to be in Project only. It seems like your entities are related, so your data model should look something like this:


If you want to display them from with a Tool or Component object, you would do that via an association between the entities:

Then, you can use these associations to show data about related entities. So, in a list of Tool, it’s easy to show the associated Project’s data.

Let me know if you have any questions!
